National Writers Series presents

An Evening with Tayari Jones

OCT 21, 2018

Tayari Jones is author of An American Marriage, a 2018 Oprah Book Club selection and an instant New York Times best seller. Jones tells the story of Celestial and Roy, newlyweds whose marriage is shattered when Roy is convicted of a crime he did not commit and sentenced to prison. Kirkus Reviews describes it as “… a love story warped by racial injustice.”
