Ideas Festival: The Toni Morrison Book Club

April 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

In their group memoir, The Toni Morrison Book Club, these four authors use Toni Morrison’s novels as a springboard for intimate and revealing conversations about the problems of everyday racism. They
discuss what it means to read challenging literature collaboratively and to learn in public as an act of individual reckoning and social resistance.
