Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for her novel Gilead, Marilynne Robinson took over 20 years after her highly acclaimed 1981 first novel, Housekeeping, to come out with this second novel.  A professor at the University of Iowa Writers Workshop since 1991, Robinson’s Gilead looks at three generations beginning with abolitionist days in Iowa and Kansas, and talks about how she incorporates the sense of place and of history into her work.
