Silver Sparrow Author Speaks
Tayari Jones visits Bookworks
By Summer Olsson [ Sun Jul 10 2011 4:00 PM ]
Silver Sparrow, the book that has rapidly gained an indie following and critical praise alike, opens with the line "My father, James Witherspoon, is a bigamist.”
Tayari Jones’ yarn about betrayal, deception and destroyed illusions twists around James Witherspoon and his two families—one public, one secret. The daughters from each family meet and become friends, but only one of them knows they are sisters.
Jones, who was born and mostly raised in Atlanta, Georgia (but spent one year in Nigeria) will speak and sign copies of her book on Monday, July 11.
