Author Allan Wolf
March 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
We’re happy to welcome Allan Wolf to Spellbound just days after the release of his newest novel for young adults, Who Killed Christopher Goodman?
The novel has already been critically lauded, receiving starred reviews from two major publications. School Library Journal calls it “a gripping mystery … this fast-paced novel will appeal to reluctant readers as well as fans of mystery and suspense,” and Booklist says Who Killed Christopher Goodman? is “Artful, thoughtful, and utterly captivating.”
On Friday March 17th at 6:00 p.m. Allan Wolf will visit Spellbound Bookshop to read from the book, discuss his research into the crime, take questions, and sign books. He’ll also bring his guitar to sing the songs that one of the book’s characters plays in the book, which is a real treat in case you’ve never heard him sing and play!
Inspired by a tragic true event in his past, Allan’s new novel examines the circumstances of one boy’s inexplicable murder and the fateful summer leading up to it.
Everybody likes Chris Goodman. Sure, he’s a little odd. He wears those funny bell-bottoms and he really likes the word ennui and he shakes your hand when he meets you, but he’s also the kind of guy who’s always up for a good time, always happy to lend a hand. Everybody likes Chris Goodman, which makes it especially shocking when he’s murdered. Here, in a stunning multi-voiced narrative — including the perspective of the fifteen-year-old killer — and based on a true and terrible crime that occurred when he was in high school, author Allan Wolf sets out to answer the first question that comes to mind in moments of unthinkable tragedy: how could a thing like this happen?
