We’re thrilled to announce that novelist Ayana Mathis will be joining our Saints and Sinners lineup! Ayana’s The Twelve Tribes of Hattie has won rave reviews from everyone from Marilynne Robinson to Oprah. The novel, which traces the lives of an African-American family through Great Migration and beyond, had us wowed. But just don’t take it from us. Upon choosing the book for her Book Club 2.0 selection, Oprah said, “I can’t remember when I read anything that moved me in quite this way, besides the work of Toni Morrison.” Ayana will speak to “finding your characters voice” and will participate in our reading series.
