John F. Moss Library Book Club to Discuss ‘Between the World and Me’

Published: February 20, 2017

Dr. Kimberly Murray, assistant professor of sociology at Texas A&M University-Texarkana, will lead a John F. Moss Library Book Club discussion on the New York Times bestseller “Between the World and Me,” a 2015 book written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, on Tuesday, Feb. 21, from 12:15-1:30 p.m. in the Tri-State Iron & Metal Atrium on the third floor of the University Center on the A&M-Texarkana campus, 7101 University Ave., Texarkana, Texas.

“Between the World and Me” is written as a letter to the author's teenaged son about the feelings, symbolism and realities associated with being black in the United States. The book was inspired by James Baldwin’s 1963 book “The Fire Next Time.”

A MacArthur “Genius Grant” fellow, Coates has received the National Magazine Award, the Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis Journalism and the George Polk Award for his Atlantic cover story “The Case for Reparations.” He lives in New York with his wife and son.
The A&M-Texarkana John F. Moss Library Book Club discussion is open to the public. A light lunch will be served.
