The Dakota Winters

The Dakota Winters

The epic and intimate story of a family living in the famed Upper West Side apartment building, The Dakota, in the year leading up to the John Lennon assassination, a moment that shaped a generation.  
The Dakota Winters is at once a family saga, a page-turning social novel, and a tale about a critical moment in the history of New York City and the country at large. Dickensian in scope, the story is faithful to the real events that happened in the city and the private lives of the Lennons.  Above all, THE DAKOTA WINTERS is about a family in flux, living, in their view, at the centre of the world.
