book cover I Have Some Questions for You

July’s book is I Have Some Questions for You by Rebecca Makkai

"Part true-crime page-turner, part campus coming-of-age" (San Francisco Chronicle) -- from the author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist The Great Believers.

A successful film professor and podcaster, Bodie Kane is content to forget her past--the family tragedy that marred her adolescence, her four largely miserable years at a New Hampshire boarding school, and the murder of her former roommate, Thalia Keith, in the spring of their senior year. Though the circumstances surrounding Thalia's death and the conviction of the school's athletic trainer, Omar Evans, are hotly debated online, Bodie prefers--needs--to let sleeping dogs lie.

But when the Granby School invites her back to teach a course, Bodie is inexorably drawn to the case and its increasingly apparent flaws. As she falls down the very rabbit hole she was so determined to avoid, Bodie begins to wonder if she wasn't as much of an outsider at Granby as she'd thought--if, perhaps, back in 1995, she knew something that might have held the key to solving the case.

Author and wooden boat builder Kevin Martin brings you through the woods and into some cities in the 4 states to find these impressive living parts of our landscape. Some of the trips include old growth pine or hemlock forests and a city tour with a horse chestnut in Portsmouth NH that was planted by a signer of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
