Jesmyn Ward's novel Sing, Unburied, Sing tells a tragic story about an African American family challenged with dissolution, but the threats here are more complex and even more tenacious than the tempest that clawed through Louisiana and Mississippi in her earlier novel Salvage the Bones. Working on a wider scale, Ward employs several strangely tethered narrators and allows herself to reach back in time while keeping this family chained to the rusty stake of American racism.
RSVP not required. The book will be available for checkout from the library reserve shelf. The library is wheelchair-accessible.
