Novelist Tayari Jones & SF Chronicle’s John McMurtrie on An American Marriage

  • WeWork City Center 1111 Broadway Oakland, CA, 94607 United States (map)

Join us for pizza, refreshments, and an enlightening discussion about Oprah's newest book club pick, An American Marriage by Tayari Jones — a timely, compelling portrayal of a relationship assaulted by forces beyond the couple’s control.

“A tense and timely love story . . . Packed with brave questions about race and class.” —People Magazine

"Novelist Jones writes brilliantly about expectations and loss and racial injustice, and how love must evolve when our best laid plans go awry."

"Tayari Jones provides an essential contemporary portrait of a marriage in this searing novel. An American Marriage gorgeously evokes the New South as it explores mass incarceration on a personal level."
—Entertainment Weekly
