Geraldine Brooks - The Secret Chord — at Sidwell Friends

Thursday, October 15, 2015 - 7:00pm to 7:15pm

From the boy with the slingshot to the legendary king and the man willing to do anything to have Bathsheba—ultimately, what kind of person was David? In her fifth novel, The Secret Chord, Brooks—who won the Pulitzer Prize for March, the New England Book Award for Fiction and the Christianity Today Book Award for Caleb’s Crossing—tells a story of one of history’s truly towering figures. To capture the many facets of this complex individual, Brooks reimagines his life from the perspectives of those who knew him, making rich characters of David’s wives, youngest son, and Natan, shepherd boy and prophet.

Brooks will be in conversation with Joel Achenbach, National Enterprise Reporter at The Washington Post.
