Kenneth Calhoun

Ken Calhoun's new novel, Black Moon, is an engrossing twist on the dystopian genre imagines the end of the world not in ice, fire, or zombies, but in sleeplessness. Calhoun’s eerie, cinematic imagining of the future has the world suffering from a widespread epidemic of insomnia; as the sleepless fight to ward off madness and protect their loved ones, five interconnected characters wander the increasingly dangerous streets, trying to find safety – and maybe a cure.


Ken is a professor of design at Lasell College in MA and this is his debut novel. He lived in Durham for 10 years (until 2010), and is excited to return to the Triangle this March in promotion of his book.
