"The Secret Chord," by Geraldine Brooks.

The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle invites you to join the Chronicle Book Club for its Aug. 27 discussion of “The Secret Chord,” by Geraldine Brooks.

From the “With more than two million copies of her novels sold, New York Times bestselling author Geraldine Brooks has achieved both popular and critical acclaim. Now, Brooks takes on one of literature’s richest and most enigmatic figures: a man who shimmers between history and legend. Peeling away the myth to bring [King] David to life in 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.”

Your Hosts:
Toby Tabachnick, editor of the Chronicle
David Rullo, Chronicle staff writer

How and When:
We will meet on Zoom on Sunday, Aug. 27, at noon.
