Event description

Description

Join us for a special evening with Pulitzer Prize winning author Marilynne Robinson (Gilead, Home, Lila, and Housekeeping), the recipient of CFW’s inaugural Commission of Faith & Work. Hear this luminary author read from and speak about her forthcoming work, What Are We Doing Here?, a sagacious collection of essays that explore the mysteries of faith and the climate of American cultural and political life. Mining great thinkers like Tocqueville, Emerson, and Calvin, while investigating how beauty forms daily life, Robinson’s unmatched voice finds a new urgency for Americans of faith. An in-depth conversation will follow, investigating the author's illustrious body of work, her rigorous and scholarly devotion to the humanities, and how it all has intersected with her own personal faith.

Reception with food and drink to follow.
