An evening with Geraldine Brooks

Author and West Tisbury resident, Geraldine Brooks, will participate in a Speakeasy Series on Wednesday, April 8th at State Road Restaurant to benefit the West Tisbury Library Foundation. Brooks will provide a sneak preview of her forthcoming novel, The Secret Chord, to be launched by Viking in September with an 18-city US tour. The Pulitzer Prize winning novelist has plunged further back into the past than ever before, imagining the life of King David in the Second Iron Age in Israel as seen through the eyes of Nathan, the royal counsellor who dares to criticize his king. Brooks will read from her new book and invite a discussion about historical fiction, and how you research a subject like David, who shimmers between myth and history.
