The Next Feast...
author of "Secret Chord" at Pawleys Plantation.
"A master of bringing the past alive, Pulitzer Prize winner ("March") and international bestseller ("Caleb's Crossing") Geraldine Brooks seems able to time travel. Sometimes, reading her work, she draws you so thoroughly into another era that you swear she's actually lived in it. Peeling away the myth to bring the Old Testament's King 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 that have been neglected. We see David through the eyes of those who love him or fear him – from the prophet Natan, voice of his conscience, to his wives Mikhal, Avigail, and Batsheva, and finally to Solomon, the late-born son who redeems his Lear-like old age. Brooks has an uncanny ability to hear and transform characters from history, and this beautifully written, unvarnished saga of faith, desire, family, ambition, betrayal, and power will enthrall her many fans. This special Saturday Moveable Feast is $45 (including the book), and will begin with lunch at noon, followed by Brooks' presentation and book signing."
