Author Ta-Nehisi Coates appears at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at 6 PM to present his new novel THE WATER DANCER.
In his boldly imagined first novel, Ta-Nehisi Coates, the National Book Award–winning author of Between the World and Me, brings home the most intimate evil of enslavement: the cleaving and separation of families. This is the dramatic story of an atrocity inflicted on generations of women, men, and children—the violent and capricious separation of families—and the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved. Written by one of today’s most exciting thinkers and writers, The Water Dancer is a propulsive, transcendent work that restores the humanity of those from whom everything was stolen.
Coates is the author of bestselling books The Beautiful Struggle, We Were Eight Years in Power and Between the World And Me, an exploration of America’s racial history that won the National Book Award in 2015. He is also the current writer of the Marvel comics Black Panther and Captain America.
