Books & Booze: An American Marriage

City Winery Atlanta

Ponce City Market’s Posman Books and City Winery have teamed up to put a new spin on the term “book club”. Literature lovers can purchase their copy of the month’s selection today from Posman Books and later bring it to Atlanta’s urban winery to enjoy a spirited discussion among fellow readers. Posman Books’ General Manager Marc Stiles will host.

This month…An American Marriage by Tayari Jones!

Newlyweds, Celestial and Roy, are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive and she is artist on the brink of an exciting career. They are settling into the routine of their life together, when they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together. This stirring love story is a deeply insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward– with hope and pain– into the future.

Author Tayari Jones joins us at this event.

2019-05-21 19:00:00 2019-05-21 21:00:00 America/New_York Books & Booze: An American Marriage Ponce City Market’s Posman Books and City Winery have teamed up to put a new spin on the term "book club". Literature lovers can purchase their copy of the month’s selection today from Posman Books and later bring it to Atlanta’s urban winery to enjoy a spirited discussion among fellow readers. Posman Books' General Manager Marc Stiles will host. This month...An American Marriage by Tayari Jones! Newlyweds, Celestial and Roy, are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive and she is artist on the brink of an exciting career. They are settling into the routine of their life together, when they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together. This stirring love story is a deeply insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward-- with hope and pain-- into the future. Author Tayari Jones joins us at this event. City Winery Atlanta

The Plaza

Bring your A-game: Your Affirmation, Allegiance, and Acceptance of Self! A six-week series for Spiritual Endurance starting Mother’s Day and going for subsequent Sundays from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. Make a reservation for $18 and 25% of the proceeds will go to Motherhood Beyond Bars–Compassionate Support for Incarcerated Women.

“All our life needs is for us to come to a spiritual endurance. The effect of this spiritual endurance is the primary factor that can take you calmly and quietly through the channels of life. There is no difference between you and your divine endurance.The pressure we all go through is sometimes unbearable and this pressure is always here. Atmosphere has a pressure, longitude and latitude have a pressure, and aptitude and attitude have a pressure. That is why we build spiritual endurance through meditation and mantra. Sometimes each person’s load can only be taken collectively. Collectively we can pull the weight. We have a collective strength in us, hand in hand, in friendship, in the love, and in the affection. Do not keep things to yourself and say, ‘I cannot.’ There is nothing you cannot do.”-Yogi Bhajan

Make a reservation for $18 and 25% of the proceeds will go to Motherhood Beyond Bars--Compassionate Support for Incarcerated Women. “All our life needs is for us to come to a spiritual endurance. The effect of this spiritual endurance is the primary factor that can take you calmly and quietly through the channels of life. There is no difference between you and your divine endurance.The pressure we all go through is sometimes unbearable and this pressure is always here. Atmosphere has a pressure, longitude and latitude have a pressure, and aptitude and attitude have a pressure. That is why we build spiritual endurance through meditation and mantra. Sometimes each person's load can only be taken collectively. Collectively we can pull the weight. We have a collective strength in us, hand in hand, in friendship, in the love, and in the affection. Do not keep things to yourself and say, ‘I cannot.’ There is nothing you cannot do.”-Yogi Bhajan The Plaza

During your first class Brittani will help determine which one is best to copy in the class (nothing too complicated please). Brittani will then show students how to create a pattern from their garment. In the second session of the class you will then learn to sew a muslin version of your garment with guidance from Brittani. *Please note, the goal of the class is to create the pattern of the item you wish to copy. In the 2nd class you will begin to sew a muslin but may need to complete it outside of class.

  • Skills Taught: The skills you will learn in this class are how to create a pattern from a favorite garment.
  • Skills Expected: You’ve taken one of our intro to sewing classes or have equivalent experience. You have some basic garment sewing experience such as a pullover top or a-line skirt. You know how to thread and use a sewing machine. You’ve sewn within the last 2 years. You will not be taught to sew in this class so please be sure you already know how to sew!
  • Materials Needed: Bring 3 favorite garments to the first session. During that session Brittani will help you determine how much fabric is needed to sew your garment in the second session.
