“An American Marriage” Reader’s Discussion

We’d love for you to join us on Zoom to discuss the novel “An American Marriage by Tayari Jones on Monday, June 29th at 6:30 pm.

In an article published in the Los Angeles Times on March 9, 2018, Nina Revoyr states that “While An American Marriage confronts thorny issues around race and the criminal justice system it is, at heart, a love story. It’s also a meditation on the creation of art, the meaning of family and the conflict between duty and desire. Jones has crafted a complex, layered story that’s both intimate and broad, a literary page-turner that’s impossible to put down.”
