[email protected] and JCC Greenwich present Pulitzer Prize-winning author

Join [email protected] and JCC Greenwich Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. for an evening with Geraldine Brooks, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of March, Year of Wonders Caleb’s Crossing and People of the Book.

Her new novel, The Secret Chord, is about one of literature’s richest and most enigmatic figures: King David, a man who shimmers between history and legend. Peeling away the myth to bring David to life in Second Iron Age Israel, Brooks traces the arc of his journey from obscurity to fame, from shepherd to soldier, from hero to traitor, from beloved king to murderous despot and into his remorseful and diminished dotage.

The Secret Chord provides new context for some of the best-known episodes of David’s life as Brooks continues to explore the meaning of faith and religion in everyday life.

Australian-born journalist and author Geraldine Brooks was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in fiction in 2006 for her novel March. Her novels Caleb’s Crossing and People of the Book were New York Times best sellers. Her first book, Year of Wonders is an international bestseller, translated into more than 25 languages and recently optioned for film. She lives on Martha’s Vineyard with her family.
