"Half the Sky" is not nearly enough room for the big, expressive sound of Vox Femina, the city's premier female chorus. Join the group as it completes its latest concert cycle with Half the Sky: Hear Our Voices at Zipper Concert Hall. Inspired by Half the Sky, a powerful book by Pulitzer winners Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, the chorus has put together a stirring program of North American originals, from spirituals to rousing civil rights anthems. A few special pieces will be performed with the young women of Mira Costa High School -- the next generation of female singing talent. Finally, the women of Vox will give "voice" to their own experiences with an original commission: Acclaimed composer Jenni Brandon has set the words of individual chorus members to her moving composition "We Are Home."

This was a rare opportunity to observe two great artists discuss their respective crafts. Particularly interesting were their comparisons between acting and writing. The discussion was filled with insights and personal stories that one rarely hears from artists of this stature. It was an unforgettable evening!

Scott Turow’s new novel, Innocent, is a sequel to his first novel, Presumed Innocent. He is the author of eight bestselling works of fiction, and two nonfiction books that include One L, which describes his experience as a first-year law student. Turow’s books have been translated into more than twenty-five languages, have sold more than twenty-five million copies worldwide, and have been adapted for film and television. He also frequently contributes essays and op-ed pieces to such publications as the New York Times, Washington Post,Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Playboy, and The Atlantic.
More than twenty years after Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto went head-to-head in the shattering murder trial of Presumed Innocent, the men are pitted against each other once again in a riveting psychological match. When Sabich, now over sixty years old and the chief judge of an appellate court, finds his wife, Barbara, dead under mysterious circumstances, Molto accuses him of murder for the second time, setting into motion a trial that is vintage Turow—the courtroom at its most taut and explosive.
With his characteristic insight into both the dark truths of the human psyche and the dense intricacies of the criminal justice system, Scott Turow proves once again that some books simply compel us to read late into the night, desperate to know who did it.
