About the Author:

James L. Swanson is the Edgar Award winning author of the New York Times bestseller, Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer. His other books include Chasing Lincoln’s Killer, the best-selling adaption of Manhunt for young adults.  He has held a number of government and think tank posts in Washington, D.C., including at the U.S. Department of Justice.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up-Marking the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination in November 1963, Swanson's compelling book (Scholastic, 2013) combines riveting narration by Will Patton with excerpts from Kennedy's speeches. Listeners learn about the president's early life, family background, his heroic service during World Wa.II, and his time in the House and the Senate. After narrowly defeating Richard Nixon in 1960, JFK moved into the Oval Office and was tested by the Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis. By fall of 1963, Kennedy had finally hit his stride and grown into the office. Ready to start campaigning for his 1964 re-election, Kennedy planned his fateful trip to Dallas. Swanson and Patton keep listeners on the edge of their seats with minute-by-minute details about the motorcade's route through Dallas and Lee Harvey Oswald's perch atop the Texas Schoolbook Depository. Though most listeners will already know the sad outcome, it's almost impossible to stop listening to Patton lay it out. A masterfully told piece of history.-Bernie Morrissey, The Harker School, San Jose, CAα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
