« back to classes page

Toni Morrison has been acclaimed as a prodigious talent. Her novels are both gritty and poetic at the same time. She was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1988 and the Nobel Prize in literature in 1993. According to one critic — “As you read her work, the world becomes more beautiful, expansive, and complicated, with every sentence.” By reading deeply and discussing her stories in detail, study group participants will be introduced to aspects of American life that may be unfamiliar to them. To start, we’ll read Morrison’s first novel: The Bluest Eye (Vintage International Edition, 2007). Then we’ll read one of Barack Obama’s favorite books: Song of Solomon (Vintage International Edition, 2004). Finally, we’ll read and discuss Morrison’s 1988 Pulitzer Prize winner: Beloved (Vintage Reprint Edition, 2004). Join us as we delve into fiction wherein everyday lives are taken seriously and described exquisitely.
