Event

Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Tayari Jones
Oprah's Book Club 2018 Selection, An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling.  Jones's beautifully written book takes an in depth look at a marriage that has been dealt a severe blow and the people who are affected by incarceration and racial injustice.

Jones's eagerly awaited fourth novel starts with newlyweds Roy and Celestial. A rising young executive and a talented artist, respectively, the couple has everything to look forward to. Then, while on a trip to visit his family, Roy is accused of rape by a woman in their hotel. He's innocent, but is convicted and sentenced to twelve years in prison. By the time he's exonerated and released, Celestial has started a relationship with his best friend. As wrenching as it is heartwarming, this masterful novel by the author of Silver Sparrow is both an illuminating examination of how the country's justice system tears apart African-American lives and a powerful, complicated love story.
