Ian Caldwell - The Fifth Gospel
Politics and Prose, Monday, March 30 at 7pm
Ten years after he co-authored the internationally bestselling The Rule Of Four, Caldwell again combines historical figures and events into a compelling intellectual mystery/thriller. Set in Rome, the story begins with the murder of a Vatican Museum curator about to unveil an exhibit involving the Diatessaron—an obscure fifth Christian gospel. Frustrated when police abandon the case, the victim’s partner, Father Alex, undertakes his own investigation, pursuing not just forensic leads but delving into what the dead man knew about scriptures and holy relics. (Simon & Schuster)

Books That Shaped America: "Family Limitation" by Margaret Sanger
Bender Library, American University, Tuesday, March 31 at 7pm
Mary Clark, Professor of Law at Washington College of Law and Interim Dean of Academic Affairs and Senior Vice Provost at American University, leads a discussion of Family Limitation by Margaret Sanger.

The Books That Shaped America events are conversations for the American University and metro-D.C. communities about books that have helped shape American society. Each discussion starts with a focal text, but the conversations stretch far beyond the pages of the books themselves. Each discussion is led by a faculty or staff member from AU.

Attendees are encouraged—but not required—to have read the featured text. The event website provides references and links for additional materials attendees may find interesting. Admission and parking are free for this series, and no RSVP is required to attend. (LenneaRB)

Hannah Nordhaus - American Ghost: A Family's Haunted Past in the Desert Southwest
Politics and Prose, Tuesday, March 31 at 7pm
Starting with reports of flashing lights and a mysterious dark-eyed figure in a Santa Fe mansion-turned-hotel, Nordhaus, a journalist and author of The Beekeeper’s Lament, tells the real-life ghost story of her great-great grandmother. Julia Schuster Staab was born in Germany and relocated to New Mexico, where she had eight children and died in 1896, perhaps of depression. Nordhaus’s account of her family is also the story of the American West and immigration, of 19th-century women’s lives and psychics, of legends and truth. (HarperCollins)

Nordhaus will be in conversation with Florence Williams, author of Breasts.
