Rebecca Makkai with Anne Blessing: I Have Some Questions For You
Sat, Nov 4 from 12pm - 1pm
Rebecca Makkai’s New York Times bestseller, I Have Some Questions For You, is an engrossing suspense novel she describes as a “literary feminist boarding school murder mystery.” Brimming with mordant wit, it is a page-turner and interrogation of our cultural obsessions. Her last novel, The Great Believers, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award, and winner of the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction and the LA Times Book Prize. A 2022 Guggenheim Fellow, she is on the MFA faculties of the University of Nevada and Northwestern University, and is Artistic Director of StoryStudio Chicago. In conversation with Festival Board member Anne Blessing, she discusses the moral complications in her new novel.
