Friday, August 20, 2010 - Fresh Air Books Releases Reluctant Pilgrim: A Moody, Somewhat Self-Indulgent 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.

About the Author
