Dr. Frank,

I just read somewhere that E.L. Konigsberg's Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth is a Juvenile forerunner to to your new book. A bit of a debate has broken out here at work as to how to pronounce "Hecate" (Hekate) and I figured I'd solicit your input, as you're a kind of dead languages expert.

Is it Heh-ca-tee or Heh-cat?

It is really pronounced Heh-ca-tee (or Heh-ca-tay.) But I'm pretty sure in that title it was meant to be Heh-cat, because it flows better and just sounds kind of wrong with three syllables. Just my guess, there.
