Join us to celebrate the life and works of American novelist Toni Morrison (1931-2019). Professor Emeritus of English Dr. Sharon Jessee will begin the program with an introduction to Morrison's importance for American literature and culture. This will be followed by audiovisual clips and readings by the audience. All are invited to share a favorite short passage from Morrison's creative or critical works or to simply listen. Bring your own book, or borrow one at the event.
