Peter Adamson launches The Kennedy Moment at Blackwell's, Oxford


A reunion of friends and lovers; a conspiracy that begins as a joke; a secret to be kept for thirty years.

Moving between Oxford, New York, Washington, Geneva and Abidjan, The Kennedy Moment is the story of five ordinary people who find themselves drawn into an extraordinary conspiracy—a gamble that could force the hand of governments and affect the lives of millions. But it could go horribly wrong …

Peter Adamson is the author of two previous novels, Facing out to Sea and The Tuscan Master, and winner of  the Royal Society of Literature V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize for his short story ‘Sahel’. For sixteen years he was Senior Adviser to the Executive Director of UNICEF in New York. In the 1970s he founded New Internationalist magazine.

This event will mark the first day that Myriad Editions and New Internationalist take centre stage as Blackwells’ Publisher of the Month.
