Was Pope Paul VII's untimely death a heart attack or a murder orchestrated by The Order of St. Helena? Gabriel's quest to prove the Order's conspiracy and solve the Holy Father's death will take him from the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, to a monastery in Assisi, to the hidden depths of the Vatican Secret Archives, and finally to the Sistine Chapel. It is a spellbinding novel of friendship and faith in an uncertain world.

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

Deacon King Kong is the latest Oprah's Book Club pick! In September 1969, a church deacon shuffles into the courtyard of a housing project in Brooklyn, pulls a .45 from his pocket, and in front of everybody shoots the project's drug dealer. The reasons for this burst of violence and the consequences that spring from it lie at the heart of McBride's critically acclaimed novel. Told with wit, insight, and faith in humanity, this master storyteller reminds us that the best way to grow is to face change without fear, and that the seeds of love lie in hope and compassion.

Paulette Jiles, the critically acclaimed, bestselling author of News of the World and Enemy Women, returns to Texas in this atmospheric story. Set at the end of the Civil War, Simon the Fiddler chronicles the life of an itinerant fiddle player, a ragtag band of musicians with whom he travels trying to make a living, and the charming young Irish lass who steals his heart. Told in Jiles's trademark spare yet lilting style, the book is a captivating, bittersweet tale of the chances a devoted man will take and the lengths he will go to fulfill his heart's yearning.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In conversation with Sarah Hepola

Award-winning landscape designer Rebecca Winn takes readers through a journey of self discovery in her book One Hundred Daffodils: Finding Beauty, Grace, and Meaning When Things Fall Apart. After the abrupt end of her 25-year marriage, Winn felt untethered spiritually, physically, and emotionally. She then embarks on a quest for meaning, identity, and purpose through gardening, a study of Jungian psychology, and a deep dive into global spiritual practices. Repeatedly compared to poet Mary Oliver, Winn transformed heartbreak into wholeness through communion with the divine in nature.

A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
"An extraordinary novel about a courageous young woman, riven by loneliness, by time, and (ultimately) by tsunami. Nao is an inspired narrator and her quest to tell her great grandmother's story, to connect with her past and with the larger world is both aching and true. Ozeki is one of my favorite novelists and here she is at her absolute best-bewitching, intelligent, hilarious, and heartbreaking, often on the same page."
-Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author

Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, delivers The Splendid and the Vile, a compelling portrait of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz. Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people "the art of being fearless." Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports, Larson provides a new lens on London's darkest year, transporting readers to a time of true leadership, when-in the face of unrelenting horror-Churchill's eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together. Larson's bestselling books include The Devil in the White City and In the Garden of Beasts.
