Professor, Novelist to Give Reading in Newton

Kenneth Calhoun, chair of Lasell's Graphic Design department and author of the acclaimed novel Black Moon, celebrates the paperback release of the book March 5 with a reading at Newtonville Books.

The reading is scheduled for 7 pm at Newtonville Books at 10 Langley Road in Newton Centre.

Calhoun's first novel, Black Moon tells the story of a dystopia created when the population begins to suffer from insomnia. With citizens driven mad by lack of sleep, the world is in chaos. The story follows several sleepers as they navigate this strange new environment.

The novel, published in hard cover in 2014, received acclaim from a number of critics including NPR and Publisher's Weekly.

"Black Moon isn't just another spin of the post-apocalypse plot wheel. Many authors have tackled the mystique of sleeplessness - but few have done so with the grotesque grace and poetic insight of Black Moon . . ." ~NPR BOOKS
