We're excited to bring award-winning author Ta-Nehisi Coates to Columbus on Sunday, February 4, at 3 pm, in collaboration with 10 other Central Ohio public libraries!

Coates is an author, journalist, National Book Award winner (Between the World and Me), MacArthur Fellow, and writer for Marvel’s Black Panther (2016-2021) and Captain America (2018-2021) comics series.

The event will feature Coates in conversation with Sophia Fifner, president and CEO of the Columbus Metropolitan Club, at the Upper Arlington High School Performing Arts Space (1625 Zollinger Road). Tickets for the event start at $25 and are available here.
