    Default Oswald's children??

    There is a scene in 11/22/63 where Jake spots that Marena is pregnant, and he says that Al left it out of his notes completely.
    He is rather shocked at this development, having not been informed of it by Al.

    Later on, I think in chapter 27, when he is reading Al's final notes about the day of the shooting, there is a part where Al says
    that "Marena gives birth in Parkland hospital to their 2nd child".

    Was this a mistake in the book by Stephen King, contradicting himself? I was a bit confused by this...

    June Lee Oswald was born in February of 1962; Audrey Marina Rachel Oswald was born in October of '63.

    My question was never answered:

    Did Stephen King accidentally make a mistake by having Jake act surprised by Marina's pregnancy, when it actually is in Al's notes?

    Can't imagine Mr. King accidentally making a mistake nor that it would get past Ms. Mod, the editors and the publishers.

    Ms. Mod has mentioned in the past that unfortunately sometimes mistakes do get through despite all of the processes the work has to go through before publication. I'm just not certain however, if that was the case in this instance.
