James J. O'Donnell - Pagans: The End of Traditional Religion and the Rise of Christianity
Politics and Prose, Saturday, March 28 at 1pm
In his latest study of the ancient world, O’Donnell, former Georgetown University Provost, and currently the University Librarian at Arizona State University, balances history’s tendency to speak only for the victors. Looking back to the earliest days of Christianity, O’Donnell takes the perspective of the devout Greeks, Romans, Syrians, Gauls, and other followers of polytheisms and tells the story of barbarism vs. faith in a new way.

J. C. Hallman - B & Me: A True Story of Literary Arousal
Politics and Prose, Saturday, March 28 at 6pm
In a direct line of literary influence, Hallman—author of The chess artist, and editor of the “creative criticism” anthologies, The story about the story, volumes one and two—references Nicholson Baker’s 1991 tribute to John Updike, U and I in this homage to reading in general and reading Baker in particular. This is bibliomania at its wittiest and most compelling, as Hallman charts the process of discovering and savoring a new writer while also learning unexpected things about himself.

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.

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.

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.
