James Kennedy, author of DARE TO KNOW - an in-person Boswell event

About this event

Boswell Book Company hosts an evening with James Kennedy, author of Dare to Know, to celebrate the paperback release of a Boswell staff favorite.

Our narrator is the most talented salesperson at Dare to Know, an enigmatic company that has developed the technology to predict anyone's death down to the second. Divorced, estranged from his sons, and broke, he's driven to violate the cardinal rule of the business by forecasting his own death day. The problem: his prediction says he died twenty-three minutes ago. As he travels across the country to find the woman he loves and the only one who can confirm the prediction's accuracy, he's forced to confront his past, the choices he's made, and the terrifying truth about the company he works for. Wildly ambitious and highly immersive, this thought-provoking thriller explores the destructive power of knowledge and collapses the boundaries between reality, myth, and conspiracy as it races toward its shocking conclusion.

Boswellians love the book! Jason: "I couldn’t put this book down, and I had to reread the end twice to figure out the mind melting conclusion that the author spun." Kay: "After about 30 minutes of rereading, I think I get it! Kennedy pulls off a wonderful trick. Then again, I could be totally wrong..." And Jenny: "Twisty, thought provoking, and delightfully quirky doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of this wild thrill ride of a novel. Set aside a day and the better part of a night, because putting your copy of Dare to Know aside won’t be an option."

James Kennedy is the author of The Order of Odd-Fish and the founder and director of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival. Before becoming a writer, he was a software engineer with a degree in physics and philosophy, subjects he continues to explore in his writing. Dare to Know is his first adult novel.
