Book Discussion of The Secret Chord, led by Pamela Rothtein, Director of Lifelong Learning
Monday, June 12 at 2:00 p.m.
For Members only
Enjoy guided discussion, the company and conversation of FJC members, and refreshments as we delve into Brooks’s acclaimed fictional treatment of King David. There is still ample time to read the book or listen to the audio version, both of which are on the Righter Library cart. Those who have not read the book are also welcome to come take away impressions and perhaps come away motivated to read it.
The Secret Chord reinterprets the well-known episodes of King David’s life and even more remarkable and emotionally intense episodes that have been largely neglected. Brooks tells the story through the eyes of the courtier, Nathan, who both counseled and castigated David.
