Cover of Italian Book

Josh Bookman, Middlebury Italian School ’12, recently published the novel “To: All The Friends I Killed.” It features Italian-American characters, French-American characters, and a little dose of mischief.

Josh said, “The Language Schools took my creativity seriously, key in making me believe I could learn a language, which in consequence, gave me the confidence to write a novel that celebrates that same love of language. I am also grateful to have kept in touch with some of my classmates, who were invaluable in both their ideas and career support.”
