The New York Times bestseller and Grammy nominee announces her first selection--The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates

MANHATTAN, N.Y. - s4story -- Amerie, New York Times bestselling author and Grammy-nominated recording artist, has launched Amerie's Book Club today with her inaugural selection, Ta-Nehisi Coates's The Water Dancer. Committed to highlighting diverse and unique voices, the new celebrity book club will be driven by a schedule of social media moments throughout each month on YouTube and Instagram, bringing her nearly 600,000 followers into her reading world.

Amerie states, "In his debut novel, The Water Dancer, Coates pulls together that which made his nonfiction so eye-opening, and weaves a narrative that pulled me into a world both beautiful and terrifying, leaving me to ponder what I might have done, what my ancestors most certainly endured."

Amerie's Book Club will announce each selection on the first Wednesday of the month, with simultaneous announcements on her YouTube channel (168K followers; 55 MM views) and Instagram (387K followers; @amerie), and will close the last Wednesday of the month with an Instagram Live chat with Amerie about the book. The following Saturday, a final YouTube video will wrap up Amerie's thoughts on the month's selection and highlight the top moments of the Instagram Live conversation.

Amerie's Book Club is a modern book club for the modern reader. "After years of building an online community on my love of books—and the other things that drive me: music, family, culture—I've found the best way to have dialogue with my fellow booklovers is online, where connection is energized and in real-time."

Anyone can follow Amerie's Book Club by accessing the hashtags #AmeriesBookClub, #ABC, #ReadwithAmerie, and #WaitingonWed, and marking their calendars for the first and final Wednesday each month.
