Thank you Geraldine Brooks

West Tisbury Library Foundation presents an Evening with Geraldine Brooks from West Tisbury Library Foundation on Vimeo.

Scenes from the first Speakeasy of the season, an evening with Geraldine Brooks. Ms Brooks read from her soon to be published “The Secret Chord.” This was Ms. Brooks  first public reading of the compelling story of the life of King David (from shepherd to soldier, from beloved king to despot) as seen through the eyes of Nathan, the royal counselor who dares to criticize his king. Before and after the reading, Ms Brooks told several funny and interesting anecdotes from her research for “The Secret Chord.” An engaging conversationalist and a bright and joyful personality, the audience thoroughly enjoyed the evening with Geraldine Brooks.

Many thanks to Mary and Jackson Kenworth, owners of State Road Restaurant, for providing the venue, delicious food and wine for this delightful evening.

An evening with Geraldine Brooks

2009_Brooks-cropwithbookphotograph by  Randi Baird

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.
