Professional Reading from Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novel 'Gilead'
Wednesday, September 25
Laguna Woods Village Library
Shelley Rones, member of the Old Pros will provide a professional reading from "Gilead," a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel authored by Marilynne Robinson. "Gilead," the first in a trilogy that includes "Home" and "Lila," is an intimate tale of three generations from the Civil War to the 20th century focusing on fathers, sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart.
Writing in the tradition of Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, Marilynne Robinson's beautiful, spare and spiritual prose allows "even the faithless reader to feel the possibility of transcendent order," according to American author Ann Hulbert.
