Dr. Ian Smith has been writing books about health for years, but his new book The Ancient Nine is fiction based on real events. Smith started writing The Ancient Nine 25 years ago while he was a student at Harvard because he knew this was a story that needed to be told.
The story is about the secret societies at Harvard and follows a student named Spencer Collins on his journey through campus. Collins is surprised to learn that he’s in the running to be invited to join one of Harvard’s elite final clubs. Spencer learns of the secret world of male privilege that the club represents, but also gets a glimpse of a century-old club mystery.
There is a contest on Facebook that readers can take part in, if you solve the mystery of the book you’ll win $2500.
Smith says that the book has been out for a week and “Hollywood is already looking at making it a movie!”
