Marilynne Robinson, “Jack”

Marilynne Robinson’s mythical world of Gilead, Iowa—the setting of her novels Gilead, Home, and Lila, and now Jack—and its beloved characters have illuminated and interrogated the complexities of American history, the power of our emotions, and the wonders of a sacred world. Jack is Robinson’s fourth novel in this now-classic series. In it, Robinson tells the story of John Ames Boughton, the prodigal son of Gilead’s Presbyterian minister, and his romance with Della Miles, a high school teacher who is also the child of a preacher. Their deeply felt, tormented, star-crossed interracial romance resonates with all the paradoxes of American life, then and now.

Robinson’s Gilead novels, which have won one Pulitzer Prize and two National Book Critics Circle Awards, are a vital contribution to contemporary American literature and a revelation of our national character and humanity.

Robinson will be in conversation with R.O. Kwon, whose nationally bestselling first novel, The Incendiaries, is published by Riverhead and was named a best book of the year by over forty publications. Kwon’s writing is published in the New York Times, The Guardian, The Paris Review, New York Magazine, NPR, and elsewhere. Named by The New York Times as one of four “writers to watch,” she has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Yaddo, MacDowell, and the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference.
