    MCCSF presents Lambda Literary Award winning novelist Susan Stinson reading from her new novel, Spider in a Tree. The book tells the story of 18th century theologian Jonathan Edwards and his life as a preacher and a slave-owner in Northampton, Massachusetts.

    “Stinson restores personhood and complexity to figures who have shriveled into caricature. . . . the payoff is not just the recovered history but the beautifully evoked sense of lives lived under the eye, not only of prying neighbors, but of God, with all the terror and possibility that entailed.”
