Lorain-born author Toni Morrison died August 5 at the age of 88 but she left behind a body of work that will resonate perhaps for centuries. Her celebrated novels, such as The Bluest Eye, Beloved, Tar Baby and Sula, explore different aspects of the black American experience, usually that of black women. She also wrote non-fiction, kids’ books, plays and even an opera libretto. She was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1988.
Members of the local literary community will gather at the Glenville Arts Campus (1464 E. 105th Street) for “Remembering Toni Morrison: A Memorial Reading.” All are invited to come to either share a short excerpt from her work that is especially meaningful to them or to speak briefly about what she meant to them.
It’s free and open to all. It’s hosted by Literary Cleveland and Twelve Literary Arts.
