James L. Swanson, The President Has Been Shot!


In stock


In his new young-adult book on the Kennedy assassination, The President Has Been Shot,  James Swanson transports readers back to one of the most shocking, sad, and terrifying events in American history, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

As he did in his bestselling Scholastic  book, Chasing Lincoln’s Killer,  Swanson uses 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 is illustrated with archival photos, and also includes diagrams, source notes, a bibliography, a list of places to visit, and an index.

1st ed., Signed by author.
