The next meeting of the UUFR Race and Culture Book Club will take place on Wednesday, November 13, at 7:00 pm in the Music Room. This month the book club is reading Tayari Jones’s “An American Marriage” novel. The New York Times opened its review 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.
