TAYARI JONES READING SILVER SPARROW

I had the immense pleasure of hearing acclaimed author Tayari Jones read an excerpt from her novel Silver Sparrow on July 14th in Denver. An amazing experience. Her abilities as an author are off the charts.

After the reading, she spent some time sharing her philosophy as an author, which was very enlightening. Her book is published by Algonquin Books, released in 2011, and is a must read.
