C.S. Lewis, the author of one of the most beloved series of the 20th Century which is none other than The Chronicles Of Narnia, died on November 23rd, 1963. Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World about a dystopian authoritarian future, died the very same day. The media barely noticed this though because at 12:30 pm local time, in Dallas Texas, on that autumn Friday afternoon, Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed President John Kennedy.
The assassination of the President was, understandably, the only news for the day that most outlets covered and it was the same for the days that followed. Sadly, that coverage rendered the deaths of the two iconic authors off the front pages and missing from the evening news.
