Reading, Signing and Reception with Tayari Jones

29 May 2012

On Tuesday, May 29, 7 pm at Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, Tayari Jones will read from and sign her novel Silver Sparrow. The book is set in a middle-class neighborhood in Atlanta in the 1980s. The opening line of the novel, "My father, James Witherspoon, is a bigamist," launches a breathtaking story about a man's deception, a family's complicity, and the two teenage girls caught in the middle. Silver Sparrow is the third stunning novel from an author deemed "one of the most important writers of her generation" (Atlanta Journal Constitution). A reception will follow the reading.

The entire event is free and open to the public.
