Ta-Nehisi Coates is not new to the literary scene, but he is certainly one to keep an eye on. We Were Eight Years in Power released just October of this year has already been crowned a New York Times Notable Book and has landed on the coveted top 10 lists around the country.

Coates is one of the most definitive voices in American history that we have today.
