Monitor Talk live event with Allegra Goodman

It's probably too early to pick the most charming novel of the year, but with Paradise Park, Allegra Goodman has set the bar pretty high. This funny story of a woman's spiritual quest is so well designed for book clubs that we've invited the author to join us for a live web chat on Tuesday August 14 at noon, EST. Goodman has created a Huck Finn for the modern age, drifting down the river of American spirituality. Full of awe, her heroine sets off on a search for God like a bargain shopper at the Mall of America. With an unconcious sense of humor, she's endearing even when she's most self-righteous, throwing herself into one religion after another. Join Allegra Goodman for a discussion of her work on August 14. For more, visit www.csmonitor.com/montiortalk.
