More Than a Month: Toni Morrison, <em>Playing in the Dark</em>

Saturday, February 10, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Author Toni Morrison has taken readers on journeys steeped in history and the human condition. Whether found on a southern plantation or navigating urban cities during the Harlem renaissance, her characters are dynamic and at the same time often flawed.

Please bring along comments and questions about your favorite Morrison novels and join us for a discussion of some of Ms. Morrison's life-changing works, including Playing in the Dark: Whiteness and the Literary Imagination.
