Ta-Nehisi Coates’s book Between the World and Me is a heartfelt look at America and its history through the lens of a black man raised in a nation that has systematically devalued people of color. The book is written as a letter to Coates’s 15-year-old son to prepare him for the realities and risks of living in America as a person of color. Powerful and hard-hitting, its message is both timely and eye-opening, both for those who have lived the experience of being black or brown in America and those who have not. Coates is a writer for The Atlantic and has won numerous awards for this book, which was a bestseller. Registration is required, beginning May 19; call 688-9580 or register online. Books are available for checkout at the Angelou Library to the first 15 people who register. This event is a special after-hours book discussion; the Library closes at 6:00 pm, but will re-open the meeting room at 6:45 for this program.
