The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates

September 26, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Before he began writing Between the World and Me and We Were Eight Years in Power, Coates was piecing together this novel about Hiram Walker, a young enslaved man with a magical gift. Coates’s fiction debut, which he’ll discuss at this event, details the sacrifices Walker makes as he fights for freedom—and the book could further cement Coates as his generation’s finest writer on the racial struggle in America.
