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.
