.Join us for Coffee & Conversation with Rebecca Makkai, author of I Have Some Questions for You, March 2nd | 10 am | Wingen Bakery (50 S. Livermore Avenue, Livermore CA. This is a TICKETED EVENT ($10).
Rebecca Makkai is the rare writer who can do it all, reinventing herself with each new book – that extraordinary range has solidified her as one of the cleverest and most imaginative writers working today.
Her last novel, The Great Believers, was a finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award; winner of the ALA Carnegie Medal, the Stonewall Book Award, the Clark Prize, and the LA Times Book Prize; named one of the New York Times’ Ten Best Books of 2018; and praised as “absorbing and emotionally riveting” (New York Times Book Review), “compulsively readable” (San Francisco Chronicle), and “a vivid, passionate, heart-wrenching story” (Wall Street Journal).
Readers, critics, and booksellers have been eagerly awaiting her next book, and Viking is thrilled to be publishing I Have Some Questions for You set in the woods of New Hampshire, this transfixing new novel follows a film professor and podcaster forced to reckon with her past – and reexamine the murder of her high school classmate.
In Makkai’s own words, it’s “the literary feminist boarding school murder mystery you didn’t know you needed.”
