Random House Book Club April Happy Hour

Join us to discuss MEMPHIS by Tara M. Stringfellow

April 26, 2022 in Zoom

Our April Spotlight Pick is a spellbinding debut novel tracing three generations of a Southern Black family—and a love letter to the people of Memphis, Tennessee.

In Memphis by Tara M. Stringfellow, Joan, an aspiring painter, must reckon with the violence in her family’s past—and the ways the women in her family line have had to make impossible choices and put their own dreams on hold so that her life would not be defined by loss and anger.

Unfolding over seventy years through a chorus of unforgettable voices that move back and forth in time, Memphis paints an indelible portrait of inheritance, celebrating the full complexity of what we pass down, in a family and as a country: brutality and justice, faith and forgiveness, sacrifice and love.

Join us on Tuesday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. ET on Zoom for our Virtual Happy Hour to discuss this beautiful debut, the characters you’ll never forget, and the things mothers will do for the sake of their daughters. This event will feature a special appearance by author Tara M. Stringfellow.
