Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage
Join us for an evening with New York Times bestselling author Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage. Her latest novel was proclaimed "brilliant and heartbreaking" by USA Today and "haunting" and "beautifully written" by The New York Times Book Review. It is also a selection of the Oprah Book Club.

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined.

Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didnt commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend and best man at their wedding. As Roys time in prison passes, she is unable to hold onto the love that has been her center. After five years, Roys conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward, with hope and pain, into the future.

This event is free. Please register at tayarimke.bpt.me. Attendees who register will get early entry if we reach or come close to capacity, priority on the signing line, and a 20% discount on An American Marriage on the night of the event.  

Tayari Jones is also the author of Silver Sparrow, Leaving Atlanta, and The Untelling. Jones holds degrees from Spellman College, University of Arizona, and University of Iowa, and is Associate Professor in the MFA program at Rutgers-Newark University. She has been the honored speaker at the Delta Memorial Endowment Fund Luncheon in Milwaukee.
