“The Last Word” Book Discussion

South Cobb Regional Library

Thursday, January 9, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

| Free

“The Last Word” Book Group meets on the second Thursday of each month at the South Cobb Regional Library for a laid back and informal book discussion. We read a variety of fiction and non-fiction and always have fun discussions. Copies of the current month’s book are available at the Reference Desk. Light refreshments will be served. Newcomers are always welcome! 

This month’s book is An American Marriage by Tayari Jones.

 

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. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.
