Acclaimed journalist  Dennis Covington will read from Revelation: A Search for Faith in a Violent Religious World. Covington spent years traveling deep into places such as  Syria, Mexico, and the American South, looking for the faith in humanity that makes difficult times bearable for people living at the edges of violence. Dennis Covington is the author of Salvation on Sand Mountain, a 1995 National Book Award finalist. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, he currently lives in Birmingham, Alabama.

"This moving and riveting first-person account will appeal to those interested in the Syrian conflict as well as readers who enjoy faith journeys such as those by Anne Lamott and Nadia Bolz-Weber." —Library Journal (starred review)
