Hybrid event: In-person and virtual tickets available (free but registration required)
November 4, 2021 @ 7:00 – 8:15 pm 

David B. Seaburn’s latest novel, Broken Pieces of God, is a story of resilience in the face of uncertainty, hope in the midst of darkness, and family ties strengthened by life’s vicissitudes. Crippling unemployment, life-threatening illness, and no health insurance push Eddy and Gayle toward life’s dark edge where they hope a Statue of Jesus, the IRS, some magical thinking, and family ties will save the day.  

“The author’s dramatization of the day-to-day realities of living with cancer is etched with fine details and deep compassion. Without any fanfare, this element of the novel comes to dominate the others, tilting a faith and relationship tale into an illness and coping story that explores powerful emotions. A sensitive and moving tale of family tragedy and renewal.” —Kirkus Review

Seaburn is the author of eight novels, including Charlie No Face, a Finalist for the National Indie Excellence Award in General Fiction; Parrot Talk, which was shortlisted for the Somerset Award in 2018; and  Gavin Goode, an American Book Fest Finalist for “Best Book” in General Fiction in 2019.
