Author Ta-Nehisi Coates discusses new book in Atlanta

Ta-Nehisi Coates, national correspondent for The Atlantic magazine and author of “Between the World and Me” will be in Atlanta Tuesday during an event sponsored by the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum.

Coates will read from and sign copies of “Between the World and Me,” his critically-acclaimed book that discusses race relations and injustice. He was also recently named a 2015 MacArthur “genius grant” fellowship recipient.

The sold-out event will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Carter Center’s Cecil B. Day Chapel, 453 Freedom Parkway.

Coates has received the National Magazine Award, the Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis Journalism, and the George Polk Award for his Atlantic cover story “The Case for Reparations.”
