An American Marriage

book coverNovember 28, 2019

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones 

Summary: 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. 

Live @ the Library: Lydia Brambila

lydia flyerLive @ Athens-Clarke County Library: Lydia Brambila, November 3 2019

The Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library invite you to a free Live! @ the Library concert featuring singer-songwriter Lydia Brambila on Sunday, Nov. 3, at 3:00 p.m. Brambila writes haunting folk songs in the spirit of Sibylle Baier, Elyse Weinberg, and Linda Perhacs right here in Athens. Lydia’s debut album Migraineur is a sparse collection of meditations on monastic figures, natural phenomena, and the impact of music on migraine: “To know that singing could feel like healing was revelatory. I wanted to make an album that reflected what that feels like: hiding in the dark, feeling powerless and alone, and still being able to find lasting and beautiful things in that space.” Lydia’s second album, Ars Apparatus, and an accompanying zine of lyrics and photographs will be released in December 2019.


This event is made possible by the Friends of the Athens-Clarke County Library and is free and open to the public. The concert will take place in the Athens-Clarke County Library’s Appleton Auditorium. For more information, call the library at (706) 613-3650. The Athens-Clarke County Library is located at 2025 Baxter Street, Athens.
