Jesmyn Ward at Garden District Book Shop

Garden District Book Shop will host Jesmyn Ward to celebrate the release of her latest novel Sing, Unburied, Sing at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 12, at their storefront (2727 Prytania Street). Ward will be in conversation with Nathaniel Rich.

Sing, Unburied, Sing grapples with the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power, and limitations, of the bonds of family. Rich with Ward’s distinctive, musical language, Sing, Unburied, Sing is a majestic new work and an essential contribution to American literature.
