About the Event

This month's book is Deacon King Kong by James McBride

In September 1969, a fumbling, cranky old church deacon known as Sportcoat shuffles into a Brooklyn housing project, pulls a .38 from his pocket, and--in front of everybody--shoots the project's drug dealer at point-blank range. The reasons for this desperate burst of violence, and the consequences that spring from it, lie at the heart of this funny, moving novel by an award-winning writer.
