Adult Book Discussion Group (The Bookmark)

  • The Bookmark 9 Public Square Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

Join us for the library's book discussion group at the Bookmark!

The discussion group meets on the third Tuesday of most months. At this meeting, we will be discussing AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE by Tayari Jones. Books are available by the library's main circulation desk.

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. In this deft exploration of love, loyalty, race, justice, and both Black masculinity and Black womanhood in 21st century America, Jones achieves that most-elusive of all literary goals: the Great American Novel...

 

Brenda Pavnica, Adult Services Department Head, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 ext. 222 or bpavnica@sscpl.lib.in.us.
