EVENT: Q&A With Ta-Nehisi Coates

 

Ta-Nehisi-Coates-Nina-SubinTa-Nehisi Coates, author of this year’s Book Read title, The Beautiful Struggle, will give a talk about his book followed by a Q&A session.

Coates’ debut book, The Beautiful Struggle, is a tough and touching memoir of growing up in Baltimore during the age of crack. Judge Hendrik Hertzberg, of The New Yorker, wrote, “Coates is one of the most elegant and sharp observers of race in America. He is an upholder of universal values, a brave and compassionate writer who challenges his readers to transcend narrow self-definitions and focus on shared humanity.”
