The Secret Chord, by Geraldine Brooks

AuthorsLive Geraldine Brooks THE SECRET CHORD

Join AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary and JCC of Greenwich for an evening with Geraldine Brooks, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of People of the Book, Year of Wonders, and March. 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.
