A school shooting sends sullen 15-year-old Linnea off to live with her estranged father in Jean Thompson’s new book The Humanity Project. Meanwhile, across town, Sean and his teenage son Conner face eviction in part due to Sean’s addiction to painkillers, while a wealthy widow turns her residence into a home for feral cats. These characters’ lives collide in The Humanity Project, a suspenseful and entertaining drama set in present-day San Francisco.

Jean Thompson is the author of numerous novels and short stories including the collection Who Do You Love, a National Book Award finalist, and Wide Blue Yonder, a New York Times Notable Book. Thompson will speak at Boswell Book Co. on Wednesday, May 8, at 7 p.m.
