Let’s find out about Raising Kane:
Secrets and lies. Is this what a family is built on?
Libby Bridgeman, a stringer for the Village Voice, balks when Max Howard, her editor, insists she interviews Alicia Kane. Though a campus rebel, a rock superstar, and an icon in the 1970s, Kane hasn’t been heard of in forty years. A Brooklyn court case involving a Black Lives Matter protest seems far more relevant. But you don’t say no to Max Howard.
While writing the article about the interview after meeting Kane, Libby receives a call from a detective—Alicia Kane is dead. Accident or suicide, the detective tells her, but Libby believes she was murdered. When Max insists that she drop the story she’s certain he knows more than he’ll tell her.
In Greenwich Village, Chicago, Niagara Falls, a Manhattan recording studio, Libby interviews people who’d known Kane. Like Max, each seems to hide something. A connection to her family?
Then, one tumultuous night she learns Alicia Kane’s complete story, and this flips her world.
