Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Geraldine Brooks
Pulitzer Prize author Geraldine Brooks "is a master at bringing the past alive," according to author Alice Hoffman. Her newest novel, The Secret Chord, is a rich and absorbing account of the life of King David. The author of five books including the international best-seller Caleb's Crossing and March, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Ms. Brooks lives on Martha's Vineyard. "Geraldine Brooks is a master at bringing the past alive, imbuing history with living, breathing characters who allow us to understand the very difficult task of being human," wrote Alice Hoffman. "Whether her novels concern ordinary people or kings, in Brookss skillful hands the issues of the past echo our own deepest concerns: love and loss, drama and tragedy, chaos and brutality... 'The Secret Chord' reads like a prose poem, with battle after battle recounted in detail, but its a page turner of a poem. "

Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Richard Russo
One of Americas most compelling and compassionate storytellers, Richard Russo discusses his eagerly awaited new novel, Everybody's Fool. Russo is author of the Pulitzer Prize winning, Empire Falls, and That Old Cape Magic and Bridge of Sighs. Richard Russo, at the very top of his game, now returns to North Bath, in upstate New York, and the characters who made Nobodys Fool a confident, assured novel [that] sweeps the reader up, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Simple as family love, yet nearly as complicated. Or, as The Boston Globe put it, a big, rambunctious novel with endless riffs and unstoppable human hopefulness. "Russo hits his trademark trifecta: satisfying, hilarious, and painlessly profound." Kirkus Review

Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Matthew Desmond
From Matthew Desmond, a Harvard sociologist and MacArthur "Genius" fellow, comes a landmark work of scholarship and reportage that will forever change the way we look at poverty in America. EVICTED: Poverty and Profit in the American City is a brilliant, heartbreaking book. Desmond takes us into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee to tell the story of eight families on the edge. He moved into a trailer park and then to a rooming house and diligently took notes on the lives of people who pay 70 to 80 percent of their incomes for homes that, objectively speaking, are unfit for human habitation.

Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Jane Mayer
The full title of Jane Mayers remarkable book is Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right. The New York Review of Books calls it "absolutely necessary reading for anyone who wants to make sense of our politics. Mayer is telling the epic story of America in our time. It is a triumph of investigative reporting, perhaps not surprising for a journalist who has won most of the awards her profession has to offer.... Shes a pro, and shes given the world a full accounting of what had been a shadowy and largely unseen force." Mayer's previous book, The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned Into a War on American Ideals, was also a New York Times bestseller.

Farm. Field. Sea.: Wampanoag Heritage
Food--its capture, cultivation, preparation, and consumption--represents a cultural act. As we explore the multi-cultural tables of Martha's Vineyard, come behind the scenes with members of the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) to explore their roots through stories, tradition and trails. Our guide will be tribal member Juli Vanderhoop, who builds community via her outdoor wood-fired bread oven at Orange Peel Bakery in Aquinnah. Summertime pizza nights bring Vineyarders and visitors from across the island together to share a slice every week. A storyteller in her own right, Juli travelled the world as a commercial pilot and teacher before she returned home to the rolling moors of Aquinnah to open the bakery. Now, she works to pass on the traditions of the past to the next generation. Adventure Includes: a personal tour of the Gay Head Cliffs, meeting wampum artists, storytellers, Tribal educators and experiencing local tastings and a picnic dinner at Orange Peel Bakery. photo courtesy of wsj.com Sponsors: Farm.Field.Sea.
