UUFR Race and Culture Book Club: November 13

UUFR Race and Culture Book Club: Wednesday, November 13, 7:00 pm (Music Room)

This month, UUFR’s Race & Culture Book Club is reading Tayari Jones’s novel An American Marriage. The New York Times opened its review of the book with, “Tayari Jones’s wise and compassionate new novel … tells us a story we think we know. Roy, a young black man, is tried and wrongly convicted of rape while his wife, Celestial, waits for his return. But Jones’s story … is a clear vision of the quiet devastation of a family.” The book is available in an e-edition, at the Wake County Library, at Quail Ridge Books, and in new and used copies online. For more information, contact Chris Wise.
