A Conversation with Toni Morrison
City Arts & Lectures presents an onstage conversation with Toni Morrison.
In conversation with Michael Krasny
Masonic Auditorium, San Francisco
Friday, November 21, 2008 at 8 pm.
Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winning author, editor and professor, Toni
Morrison is best known for her richly detailed and epic novels. In her last nine novels, including Beloved, Paradise, and Song of Solomon, she has focused on the particular joys and sorrows in the lives of black American women. In 1993, Morrison became the first black woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Morrison’s newest novel, A Mercy, revisits some of her most familiar themes, revealing what lies beneath the surface
of slavery and exploring the way that acts of mercy, like everything else,
have unforeseen consequences.
