On Second Thought for Friday, February 16, 2018

Feb 16, 2018


We talked with Atlanta native Tayari Jones. Her latest novel, “An American Marriage,” was included this month in Oprah’s Book Club. Jones is in Savannah this weekend for the annual Savannah Book Festival.

Marvel’s Black Panther is now showing nationwide. It was produced and partially filmed in Georgia. We meet two of the people who worked behind the scenes.

In honor of the Savannah Book Festival, we headed into the Breakroom with an all-authors panel. We were joined by writers Nicki Salcedo, Joe Hill, Christina Kelly, and Tayari Jones. They shared their thoughts on Barack Obama’s presidential portrait, when it’s ok not to remove graffiti from private property, and how to relieve anxiety.
