ECPA's Rush To PressBook Signing Schedule for Uncommon Marriage Announced

New York Times bestselling authors Tony and Lauren Dungy will sign newest book in multiple states; title releases February 4

“[The Dungys] offer their thoughts in personal, conversational style with the hope that readers can recognize some part of their own marriage and be able to find guidance, hope, and encouragement. The book reads more like an enjoyable chat with longtime friends than the helpful marriage guidebook that it is.” — Publishers Weekly on Uncommon Marriage

In Uncommon Marriage, Dungy, the first African American head coach in NFL history to guide his team to a Super Bowl title, joins his wife, Lauren, also a New York Times bestselling author of children’s books coauthored with her husband, to impart principles they have learned during their 31-plus years of marriage. The Dungys draw on their own experiences to offer hope, encouragement, and practical advice to those who would like their marriages to be “better” but aren’t sure what to do differently.

Uncommon Marriage features personal stories from a couple who have not just made marriage work, but, according to the Dungys, also have done so joyfully and with a sense of purpose and partnership. Through their stories, the Dungys relate real-life lessons they’ve learned about developing and maintaining a strong, fulfilling, faith-filled marriage.
