Author Tayari Jones presents Silver Sparrow
Launch party including refreshments and signing

Tayari Jones (author of Leaving Atlanta and The Untelling) was born in Atlanta and is now a fixture in the Brooklyn literary world. Her new novel Silver Sparrow, set in Atlanta in the 1980s, has taken the Greenlight staff by storm with its searing yet compassionate portrayals of the two families of one man – the public one and the secret one. When the daughters from each family meet and form a friendship, only one of them knows they are sisters. It is a relationship destined to explode, but as Jones explores the backstories of her rich and flawed characters, she also reveals the joy, and the destruction, they brought to each other's lives. Greenlight is proud to host the launch of this tremendous new book.
