From the arranged match in the Big Read book The Namesake to same sex unions in Massachusetts, ideas of marriage are not fixed across time and place. Acclaimed journalist, author, and public speaker, E.J. Graff will discuss the social and historical aspects of marriage with her trademark witty, irreverent, informed insight on justice issues. Graff is the author of What Is Marriage For? The Strange Social History of Our Most Intimate Institution.
The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. To see other Big Read events visit http://www.readingpl.org/
