Opening Keynote with Tayari Jones

Oprah's 2018 Book Club Selection. Barack Obama's summer reading recommendation. Instant New York Times Bestseller. You've heard the praise — now meet bestselling novelist and speaker Tayari Jones as she delivers the 2018 Keynote Address for the 2018 Harrisburg Book Festival.

In An American Marriage, Jones takes us to the Deep South, offering us an unforgettable masterpiece of storytelling, and an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward—with hope and pain—into the future.

This is a ticketed event. Book signing to take place after the keynote address. Tickets can be purchased at www.hbgbookfest.com
