Reading and Booksigning by Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novelist Geraldine Brooks

23 May 2012

On Wednesday, May 23, 7 pm at Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Geraldine Brooks will read from and sign her recent novel, Caleb's Crossing. Caleb’s Crossing is a New York Times bestselling tale of passion and belief, magic and adventure. In it, the narrator Bethia Mayfield, a restless and curious young woman, grows up in Martha's vineyard in the 1660s amid a small band of pioneering English Puritans. At age twelve, she meets Caleb, the young son of a chieftain, and the two forge a secret bond that draws each into the alien world of the other. Inspired by a true story, Caleb’s Crossing brilliantly captures the triumphs and turmoil of two brave, openhearted spirits who risk everything in a search for knowledge at a time of superstition and ignorance.
