CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED WRITER AND AUTHOR TA-NEHISI COATES COMING TO CLEVELAND PUBLIC LIBRARY

 

Cleveland Public Library is welcoming critically acclaimed author and writer Ta-Nehisi Coates to its Writers & Readers stage on Saturday, February 22, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. in the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium on East 6th Street and Superior Avenue. Joanna Connors, book editor from The Plain Dealer, will moderate the discussion.

“Ta-Nehisi Coates is a fantastic example of the caliber of writers CPL brings to Cleveland as part of our Writers & Readers series,” said Felton Thomas, Director of CPL. “His remarkable writing, and social commentary fits perfectly with our celebration of African American History Month.”

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a former writer for The Village Voice, senior editor of the Atlantic, and the author of a lively blog on culture, politics, and social issues. He is also the author of The Beautiful Struggle, a tough and touching memoir of growing up in Baltimore during the crack epidemic. The Beautiful Struggle also provides a vivid portrait of Coates’ father, a Vietnam veteran and Black Panther who started his own underground black press and dedicated his life to carrying his sons across the shoals of inner city adolescence.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Books will be available for purchase from A Cultural Exchange. For more information, visit cpl.org.
