Mark Shaw, Author of Poison Patriarch, Joins Robert K. Tanenbaum for JFK Event
Mark Shaw, author of 26 books and legal analyst for ABC, ESPN and USA Today will join Robert K. Tanenbaum for an engaging discussion and book signing at Muse on Rodeo on Nov. 12th, at 7 p.m. to honor the 50 year anniversary of the assassination.

Just released this month, Mark Shaw’s new book, “The Poison Patriarch: How the Betrayals of Joseph P. Kennedy Caused the Assassination of JFK (Skyhorse Publishing),” provides a fresh perspective on the JFK Assassination. His theory leads to the family patriarch, Joseph P. Kennedy. For fifty years, Shaw maintains, researchers investigating the president’s murder in Dallas have been looking at the wrong motives and actors. The Poison Patriarch offers a shocking reassessment—
His book includes forty new interviews and weaves a spellbinding narrative involving Mafia don Carlos Marcello; Jack Ruby (Lee Harvey Oswald’s killer); Ruby’s attorney, Melvin Belli; and, ultimately, the Kennedy brothers and their father.
Bestselling author, Nicholas Pileggi (Wise Guys and Casino) said it’s “…A fascinating and unique account of what happened in Dallas in 1963. Mark Shaw really nails it down regarding who was responsible for the assassinations and why.”
Robert K. Tanenbaum is a New York Times bestselling author, former Mayor of Beverly Hills, and served as deputy Chief counsel for the Congressional Committee Investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He wrote the introduction to Mark Lane’s book, “Last word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK,” which Oliver Stone also contributed to. He was one of the featured speakers at Passing the Torch: An International Symposium on the 50th Anniversary of the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy at Duquesne University.
According to a 2003 Gallup poll, it found that 75 percent of Americans felt there was a conspiracy involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Fast forward to present, the country is still divided in opinion, and a smaller percentage still believe Oswald acted alone. People are still seeking answers to questions.
The evening will begin at 7:00 pm and dinner and/or dessert ticket options are available. Seating is limited. Interested attendees should register at
