Please join us for a book talk and signing with Susan Stinson, author of the new historical novel, Spider in a Tree.

Renowned Stockbridge resident Jonathan Edwards is considered American’s most brilliant theologian. He was also a slave owner. Spider in a Tree tells the story of the years he spent as a preacher in eighteenth century Northampton, Massachusetts, a town he made famous for piety before its people rejected him. Ordinary grace, human failings and extraordinary convictions combine in unexpected ways to animate this New England tale.
