Coates\, a MacArthur fellow\, is also the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle and the current author for Black Panther and Captain America comic series. He will read from his highly anticipated debut novel The Water Dancer. “In prose that sings and imagination that soars\,” Publisher Weekly says with this novel\, “Coates further cements himself as one of this generation’s most important writers\, tackling one of America’s oldest and darkest periods with grace and inventiveness. This is bold\, dazzling\, and not to be missed.” \n URL: LOCATION:Cullen Performance Hall\, University of Houston\, 4300 University Drive\, Houston\, TX\, 77204\, United States CATEGORIES:2020/2021 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
