'Silver Sparrow'

"Silver Sparrow"

GREENSBORO — The Greensboro Public Library and UNC Greensboro will launch a community “Big Read” of the novel "Silver Sparrow" by Tayari Jones at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday via Zoom.

Speakers include state Rep. Ashton Clemmons and keynote speaker Sharon L. Contreras, superintendent of Guilford County Schools.

The community read will include free panel discussions, speakers and family-oriented activities between now and May 2021.

Named a “Most Anticipated Book for 2020” by The Guardian and other news outlets, "Silver Sparrow" is a novel told from the perspectives of two maturing daughters of a man who has two families — one public, one private.

The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Visit to register in advance for the event and find more upcoming book discussions and events.
