Description

A breathtaking and dramatic account of the JFK assassination by the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of CHASING LINCOLN'S KILLER!

In his new young-adult book on the Kennedy assassination, James Swanson will transport readers back to one of the most shocking, sad, and terrifying events in American history. As he did in his bestselling Scholastic YA book, CHASING LINCOLN'S KILLER, Swanson will deploy his signature "you are there" style - a riveting, ticking-clock pace, with an unprecedented eye for dramatic details and impeccable historical accuracy - to tell the story of the JFK assassination as it has never been told before.

The book will be illustrated with archival photos, and will have diagrams and extensive back matter.

Contributors:

James L. Swanson has written for a variety of publications, including the WALL STREET JOURNAL and the LOS ANGELES TIMES. He is the coauthor of LINCOLN'S ASSASSINS: THEIR TRIAL AND EXECUTION, and he is a member of the advisory committee of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. Mr. Swanson is an attorney and has held a number of government and think-tank posts in Washington, DC.
