Ta-Nehisi Coates in Conversation: the Water Dancer
New York Times Best-Selling author Ta-Nehisi Coates returns to the Apollo stage to kick off the national book tour for his latest work, The Water Dancer. This in-depth conversation will be held with a special guest to be announced. This evening will also serve as Coates's first program as Apollo Theater's inaugural Artist-In-Residence. The three-year initiative, which will include events on the Apollo's iconic stage and in the new Apollo spaces in the Victoria Theater in Fall 2020. In his boldly imagined first novel, Ta-Nehisi Coates, the National Book Award-winning author of Between the World and Me and We Were Eight Years in Power, brings home the most intimate evil of enslavement: the cleaving and separation of families. Driven by the author's fierce imagination and striking ability to bring readers deep into the interior lives of his brilliantly rendered characters, The Water Dancer is the story of America's oldest struggle—the struggle to tell the truth—from one of America's most exciting writers.
