Some of you may remember Ta-Nehisi Coates as a Vertigo regular and erstwhile bookseller
. We hope you will join us Friday
and talk with Ta-Nehisi (please note this is a change from our original date). Ta-Nehisi is a careful listener and a young writer exceptionally attuned to the nuances of debate. If you are not familiar with Ta-Nehisi’s writing for the Atlantic
and his blog
, here’s an intro
On January 19, 2009 Ta-Nehisi joined Rev. Joe Lowery and others to talk with Gwen Ifill. Gwen Ifill is well known for her fine work as a print journalist, at CBS and now as moderator of Washington Week and senior correspondent of The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. The Breakthrough makes us wish that she’d worked a book into her schedule a little sooner. The Los Angeles Times put it well—“a strongly reported book, with some broad conclusions drawn from scores of interviews and peppered with interesting, revealing profiles…Yet this is more than a book of connected profiles and narratives. Ifill bores at varying depths into race, class, gender and generational change.”
