The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gilead (along with several other novels and books of revelatory essays) returns to the mythical town of Gilead, Iowa in Jack, her latest novel about an interracial romance between the prodigal son of the town’s Presbyterian minister and a local high school teacher (who’s also the child of a preacher). Join the author, whose sentences “hit with the weight of a proverb,” according to Rich Smith, for an online reading.
