PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In partnership with The Black Academy of Arts & Letters

In September 1969, a church deacon shuffles into the courtyard of a housing project in south Brooklyn, pulls a .45 from his pocket, and in front of everybody shoots the project's drug dealer. The reasons for this desperate burst of violence and the consequences that spring from it lie at the heart of Deacon King Kong, the first novel fromJames McBride since his National Book Award-winning The Good Lord Bird. As the story deepens, it becomes clear that the lives of the characters affected by the shooting-caught in the tumultuous swirl of 1960s New York-overlap in unexpected ways.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Location: First United Methodist Church
"I am Ana. I was the wife of Jesus." So begins the new novel from Sue
Monk Kidd
, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees and The Invention of Wings. The Book of Longings is an extraordinary story set in the first century about a woman who finds her voice and her destiny in a time of great despair and great hope. Raised in a wealthy family, Ana is rebellious and ambitious, a seeker with a brilliant, curious mind and a daring spirit. Defying the expectations placed on women, she engages in furtive scholarly pursuits and writes secret narratives about neglected and silenced women. When she meets the 18-year-old Jesus, each is drawn to and enriched by the other's spiritual and philosophical ideas. He becomes a floodgate for her intellect, but also awakens her heart. Sue Monk Kidd says, "I wanted to portray Jesus as fully human. Writing from a novelist's perspective and not a religious one, I was drawn to his humanity, which can often be overlooked. Ana wandered into my imagination and I couldn't ignore her."
