Fairhaven Alumnus Book Release!

May 20, 2014

Rare Bird Books has just released Echo of the Boom by Maxwell Neely-Cohen, Fairhaven School class of 2004. A fascinating novel that explores contemporary youth culture amidst a looming apocalypse, Max’s book is an intellectual tour-de-force and a page-turner.

Based in Washington, D.C., “Echo” explores what makes Millenials tick as they text away, and Max’s lifelong interest in military theory certainly informs his characters and the narrative arc of his novel.

Max’s first public reading took place in the Chesapeake Room here at Fairhaven School in celebration of our first fifteen years last November, and the four hurtling narratives hooked the audience members then! Support the arts, and support our wonderful alumnus Max; see what happens to Efram, Chloe, and the rest of his video-gaming, deejaying, philosophical characters by buying this unique, entertaining book. We will let you know when the “Echo of the Boom” book tour lands in DC.

Congratulations, Max. Now where in the world did you get the idea for the school-wide Capture the Flag game?
