On Tuesday, Oct. 27th at 3 p.m. we’ll host a discussion of An American Marriage by Tayari Jones in our Bradley Meeting Room. Helen Gallagher and Lynne Clough will facilitate. An American Marriage is a compelling love story that is also a clear-eyed look at the effects of injustice in contemporary American life. The novel chronicles three people who are bound together and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage was a New York Times bestseller and was praised by Barack Obama as “a moving portrayal of the effects of a wrongful conviction on a young African American couple” and labeled “a complex, layered story that’s both intimate and broad, a literary page-turner that’s impossible to put down” in a “Los Angeles Times” book review.
