PopUp Book Club

"With this stunning debut novel, Rebecca Bruff establishes herself as an exciting new voice in historical fiction." --Cassandra King Conroy, author of Moonrise, and Founding Honorary Chair of the Pat Conroy Literary Center

Inspired by the life of a little known Civil War hero, Trouble the Water navigates the rich tributaries of courage, betrayal, and redemption. As a young slave in South Carolina, Robert Smalls witnesses great privilege and immense suffering alongside his owner's daughter and the dangerous son of a firebrand secessionist. When he's only twelve, he's put to work in Charleston, where he loads ships and learns to pilot a cotton steamer. When the war erupts and his cotton steamer becomes a confederate warship, Robert seizes the opportunity to pursue freedom for himself and the people he loves.

Join us for a book discussion with author Rebecca Dwight Bruff (formally Rev. Rebecca Frank, Associate Minister at HPUMC) and a light lunch. Trouble the Water can be purchased on Amazon and at Logos Bookstore. RSVP for the $10 lunch at or 214.523.2246.
