Geraldine Brooks: The Secret Chord
Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books present Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Geraldine Brooks, who will sign and discuss her new novel, "The Secret Chord."
In perhaps her most ambitious novel yet, Brooks takes on 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, as seen through the eyes of those who love or fear him.
