Our Next Event

07/11/2014 - 7:00pm

A high school music festival goes awry when a young prodigy disappears from a hotel room that was the site of a famous crime, in a whip-smart novel sparkling with the dark and giddy pop culture pleasures of The Shining, Agatha Christie, and Glee.

The search for answers entwines a hilariously eccentric cast of characters--conductors and caretakers, failures and stars, teenagers on the verge and adults trapped in memories. For everyone has come to the Bellweather with a secret, and everyone is haunted.

Full of knowing nods to the shivery pleasures of suspense and the transporting power of music, this is a wholly winning new novel from a writer lauded as "charming" (Los Angeles Times), "witty" (O, The Oprah Magazine), and "whimsical" (People).

Kate Racculia is a writer and researcher living in Boston, Massachusetts (for a little while longer, at least). Her first novel, This Must Be the Place, was published by Henry Holt & Company in 2010.

She was a teenage bassoonist.  In her hometown of Syracuse, New York, she played in her high school band, the Lyncourt Summer Concert Band, the Syracuse Symphony Youth Orchestra, and various NYSSMA festivals.  Her bassoon was named Nigel.

Kate studied illustration, design, Jane Austen, and Canada at the University of Buffalo.  She has her MFA from Emerson College, and teaches novel and genre fiction workshops at Grub Street, Boston’s non-profit creative writing community.  She has been a bookseller, a planetarium operator, a coffee jerk, a designer, and a proposal writer.

She posts many pictures of her cat on the Internet, is a total sucker for a saxophone solo, and has every intention of growing up to be Jessica Fletcher.
