In other news: James Swanson pens deal for JFK assassination book

By The Reliable Source

Author James Swanson, 2010. (Susan Biddle/FTWP)

Heritage Foundation scholar James Swanson -- whose 2006 "Manhunt," about the search for John Wilkes Booth, became a bestseller -- is moving on to another presidential assassination. He's signed a deal (estimated in the seven figures) with the William Morrow imprint of HarperCollins for a book on the JFK killing, due out for the 50th anniversary in fall of 2013. There will probably be a lot of new writings on that well-covered topic, but "I hope my book will be a definitive book on the subject," the D.C. legal scholar told us. Among the goals he's set for the still-untitled project: To find whatever became of the iconic pink pillbox hat Jackie Kennedy wore that day, currently lost to history.
