Tuesday, October 18, 7pm in the Alyce Thompson Room. Book: Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks. Peeling away the myth to bring the Old Testament’s King David to life in the 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. Refreshments served. Everyone is welcome!
