Toni Morrison: Lecture and Reading
Start Date: 4/7/2014Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 4/7/2014End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description
From "The Bluest Eye" through "Home," Nobel laureate Toni Morrison’s novels have shaped and defined American fiction. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in fiction for "Beloved" and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, among many other honors, Morrison holds the Robert F. Goheen Chair in the Council of Humanities at Princeton University. As Morrison wrote in her Nobel Prize acceptance speech, “Word-work is sublime … because it is generative; it makes meaning that secures our difference, our human difference—the way in which we are like no other life.” Morrison’s work has transformed both the stylistic range of American letters and its understanding of history and community.

Free and open to the public.
