Introvert’s Search for Spiritual Community The author's[Enuma Okoro]clever and poignant writing keeps readers enthralled at
her every triumph and personal trial, and it speaks to anyone who's struggled to
reconcile faith and ways of worship. − Publisher's Weekly
NASHVILLE, TN – If you sometimes feel lost on your spiritual journey, you’ll find a
trustworthy companion in Enuma Okoro. Okoro’s first book, Reluctant Pilgrim,
releases in September. Readers are sure to be captivated by this luminous,
laugh-out-loud funny, and piercingly honest account of the author’s personal quest
to find and savor the goodness of God.
Okoro, a tea-drinking, purse-shopping, shaky follower of Jesus, wouldn’t mind
meeting a guy who loves God and has decent hair. But after her father’s unexpected
death, her grief seems to morph into the panicky feeling that God wants something
more from her. Part Augustine, part Jane Austen with a side of Anne Lamott, Okoro’s
book is daring, insightful, and a deeply moving field guide for the curious, the
confused, and the convicted.
Fresh Air Books will formally launch Reluctant Pilgrim on October 11 at the Reality
Center in Durham, North Carolina. The event will also feature special musical guest
Shana Tucker, a "ChamberSoul" cellist/singer/songwriter from New York. Enuma Okoro
will be touring and speaking about her book in the coming months in various cities
throughout the U.S., including Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Nashville, Kansas City,
and St. Paul.
