Readings & Conversations: Richard Powers with Tayari Jones

Lannan presents Readings & Conversations, bringing inspired writers of fiction and poetry, as well as advocates of cultural freedom and liberation, to read from and discuss their work.
Richard Powers is the author of 12 novels, each employing multiple narrative frames to explore connections among disciplines as disparate as photography, artificial intelligence, musical composition, genomics, game theory, virtual reality, race, business, and ecology. His most recent novel, The Overstory, is a tale of activism and resistance about the secret language of trees and the people they bring together to save them. Tayari Jones’s novels include Leaving Atlanta, Silver Sparrow, and the recent An American Marriage, a 2018 Oprah’s Book Club selection. She is a professor of creative writing at Emory University.
Tickets: $8 Adult, $5 Senior/Student.
