On Monday, August 5, 2019, the world lost one of its greatest literary voices, Toni Morrison. Thankfully, her words live on. (Also, if you've read her work, you know that she viewed the line between the living and the dead as very fine, perhaps even permeable.)
The English Department invites anyone who wishes to join us to celebrate and honor Toni Morrison and her work with a memorial read-in. Read a favorite brief passage of her work or just listen to other readers. As we mark the significant anniversaries of the Black Student Union and of women at Kenyon, it is particularly fitting that we take a moment to remember this African American woman writer who unapologetically centered the voices of black people and especially of black girls and women.
Refreshments will be provided.
