The Levels

The 22nd November marks the fiftieth anniversary of one of the most significant and shocking events in 20th century history, the assassination of President John F Kennedy. Most people know exactly where they were and what they were doing when the news hit. Inspired by this concept, three major writers give their own spin on that day through fictional stories of ordinary people as their lives are caught in that precise moment, perhaps even undergoing monumental changes in their own lives?

November 1963, in a cottage hospital a pregnant woman anxiously awaits news on her unborn child and her husband's tardy arrival.
