FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A group of journalists who covered President John F. Kennedy's fateful trip to Texas are set to gather for a discussion.

The program "Fort Worth Remembers JFK" set for the Texas Christian University campus also will feature actor/director Bill Paxton, who as a young boy heard the president speak outside the Hotel Texas in Fort Worth.
