- April: An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
In April, we will be reading An American Marriage by Tayari Jones. 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. In this deft exploration of love, loyalty, race, justice, and both Black masculinity and Black womanhood in 21st century America, Jones achieves that most-elusive of all literary goals: the Great American Novel. Don't forget! There is a $5 fee which goes to Time Tested Books for letting us use their great space. Please bring a dish to share with the group (whatever you like!). We mingle for the first 30 minutes and sit down for discussion promptly at 7pm. Thanks!
