Presenting The Water Dancer

Award-winning author and journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates heads out on an exclusive tour this fall as he presents his debut novel, "The Water Dancer". Held in high esteem by critics and book lovers alike, Coates is one of America's most exciting writers, garnering awards like the National Book Award and receiving a grant from the McArthur Fellowship.

Stamped as one of The New York Times' Best Sellers and garnering the National Book Award "Between The World and Me" saw Coates is a bold literary exploration of America's racial history.
