On Wednesday, September 8th at 4:00pm PDT Warwick's will host Meredith Hall as she discusses the new paperback edition of her debut novel, Beneficence, in conversation with Christina Baker Kline. Meredith Hall’s memoir Without a Map is a classic of the genre and a New York Times bestseller. It was named Best Book of the Year by Kirkus and BookSense, as well as Elle’s “Readers’ Pick of the Year.” Her work has appeared in Five Points, The Gettysburg Review, The Kenyon Review, The Southern Review, The New York Times, and many others. Hall divides her time between Maine and California.

Written by a masterful storyteller, this is a book that illuminates the journey we make through grief to healing.

In the midst of a nearly perfect life, Doris Senter is thankful but wary. "We can't ever know what will come," she says. When an unimaginable tragedy turns the family of five into a family of four, everything the Senters held faith in is shattered. The family is consumed by sorrow and guilt. Slowly, the surviving family members find their way to forgiveness - of themselves and of each other.

Few writers know the human heart and the burden of grief as Meredith Hall. This is a radiant novel of goodness and love - both its gifts and its obligations - that will stay with readers long after the last page. With a rare tenderness and compassion, Beneficence shows broken hearts becoming whole as this family reclaims their love and peace.

A #1 New York Times bestselling author of eight novels, including The Exiles, Orphan Train and A Piece of the World, Christina Baker Kline is published in 40 countries. Her novels have been awarded the New England Prize for Fiction, the Maine Literary Award, and a Barnes & Noble Discover Award, among other accolades, and have been chosen by hundreds of communities, universities and schools as “One Book, One Read” selections. Her essays, articles, and reviews have appeared in publications such as the New York Times and the NYT Book Review, The Boston Globe, The San Francisco Chronicle, LitHub, Psychology Today, and Slate. Born in England and raised in the American South and Maine, she lives in New York City and on Mount Desert Island in Maine.
