Pulitzer-Winning Author Geraldine Brooks Discusses Her Latest With Lalita Tademy

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Kepler's Bookstore (see times)
Geraldine Brooks, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "People of the Book" and "March", comes to Kepler's Books in Menlo Park to discuss her new novel "The Secret Chord". Her latest work looks at 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 while also focusing on others, even more remarkable and emotionally intense, that have been neglected.

Best-selling author Lalita Tademy will join Brooks in this rich discussion of historical fiction. Tademy's best known for her debut novel "Cane River", which was an Oprah Book Pick, became San Francisco's One City, One Book selection in 2007 and was chosen as assigned reading for all incoming Stanford University freshmen in 2015.
