July Book Club- An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
July 7 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for July’s book club discussion about An American Marriage by Tayari Jones.
Excerpt from the Washington Post review:
Tayari Jones’s new novel, “An American Marriage,” makes a surprising companion to “Sing, Unburied, Sing.” Her African American characters would seem to inhabit a different world: They’re college-educated, gainfully employed, upwardly mobile; they haven’t been flailed by poverty or caught by the hooks of addiction. But they are black, and in America, that fact trumps everything else. The justice system that rips apart their lives is the same one that ruins the desperate family in Ward’s novel.

Inclement Weather Policy
The Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro (AAGW) recognizes the fact that inclement weather can affect the organizations’s ability to be open for business, hold events, and the employees’ and volunteers’ abilities to get to and attend events. The safety of the AAGW’s employees and volunteers is paramount to the organization. If any of the following events occur, Gallery 50, Music Makers, and all events associated with the AAGW are considered cancelled for that day:
(1) The governor declares a weather emergency and asks people to stay off the roads
(2) Waynesboro Area School District cancels school or after-school activities due to inclement weather
(3) Penn State Mont Alto cancels evening classes.
The AAGW will make every attempt to update social media to reflect the cancellation by 3pm for any evening events and by 8:30am for any morning events, but any notification stating one of the (3) events listed above has occurred should be considered notification of the cancellation.
