Taj McCoy's upcoming event, "The Good Ones Are Taken," at Union Market in Washington, DC, promises to be an engaging and thought-provoking experience for attendees. The story follows Maggie, a woman who, after a bad breakup, is determined to find her Prince Charming, but instead finds herself navigating a sea of frogs. As Maggie's best friends, Savvy and Joan, put pressure on her to find a date worthy of attending their respective weddings, she reluctantly agrees to try online dating, despite her doubts. As Maggie navigates the challenges of her bridal party duties and the ups and downs of online dating, her college bestie, Garrett, throws a wrench in the works by constantly pointing out the red flags and urging her to keep looking. When Garrett finally admits his true feelings for Maggie, her world is turned upside down, and she must choose between the perfect guy and a friendship that has been the foundation for everything she's ever wanted. Oakland-born law grad Taj McCoy is known for her commitment to championing stories that include Black and multiracial women of color, plus-size protagonists, Black love, Black joy, and strong senses of sisterhood and familial bonds. Taj's passion for storytelling began at a young age, and she continues to share her unique perspectives and experiences through her writing. This event at Union Market is a must-attend for anyone who enjoys heartwarming, relatable, and empowering stories that celebrate diversity and the complexities of modern relationships. With free admission and first-come, first-served seating, this event is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in Taj McCoy's captivating narrative and connect with a community of readers who appreciate authentic and inclusive storytelling.
