Martha Shelley, author of Haggadah, will be in Portland, Oregon and multiple cities in California to read from her newest book, The Stars in Their Courses (Ebisu Publications, 2014).
In the author’s own words: “The Stars in their Courses is a controversial re-interpretation of the Biblical story of Jezebel, Queen of Israel, and her arch-enemy, the prophet Elijah. Religious massacres. Sexual politics. Rapacious rulers and landless laborers. The clash of empires. And, embedded throughout, a love story. The reader will enjoy a rattling good tale, and in the process absorb a greater understanding of a world that is, after all, not so different from our own.”
