A discarded painting in a junk pile, a skeleton in an attic, and the greatest racehorse in American history - from these strands, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Geraldine Brooks braids a sweeping story of spirit, obsession, and injustice across American history in her latest novel, Horse.

Based on the remarkable true story of the record-breaking thoroughbred Lexington, this riveting story toggles between Kentucky in 1850, New York City in 1954, and contemporary Washington, DC, weaving together art and science, love and obsession, and our unfinished reckoning with racism.

Brooks is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel March and the international bestsellers Caleb’s Crossing, People of the Book, and Year of Wonders. She has also written the acclaimed non-fiction works Nine Parts of Desire and Foreign Correspondence.

Brooks will be in conversation with Rabbi Debra Robbins.
