Event Details

Orca Books Cooperative is happy to host a virtual reading of the new true crime book Every Hill a Burial Place by Olympia author Peter Reid on Wednesday, October 7 at 5:00pm.

On March 28, 1966, Peace Corps personnel in Tanzania received word that volunteer Peppy Kinsey had fallen to her death while rock climbing during a picnic. Local authorities arrested Kinsey’s husband, Bill, and charged him with murder as witnesses came forward claiming to have seen the pair engaged in a struggle. The incident had the potential to be disastrous for both the Peace Corps and the newly independent nation of Tanzania. Because of the high stakes surrounding the trial, questions remain as to whether there was more behind the final “not guilty” verdict than was apparent on the surface.

Peter H. Reid, who served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Tanzania at the time of the Kinsey murder trial, draws on his considerable legal experience to expose inconsistencies and biases in the case. He carefully scrutinizes the evidence and the investigation records, providing insight into the motives and actions of both the Peace Corps representatives and the Tanzanian government officials involved. Reid does not attempt to prove the verdict wrong but critically examines the events of Kinsey’s death, her husband’s trial, and the aftermath through a variety of cultural and political perspectives.

Orca Books Co-op serves as Olympia’s community bookstore from their new location at 5th Avenue. The cooperative is proud to foster community education through the support of authors and artists, creating a friendly, open, and safe space for all—as well as allowing access to a diverse collection of fiction and non-fiction books.
