'Really a Way of Thinking'


“Writing is really a way of thinking--not just feeling but thinking about things that are disparate, unresolved, mysterious, problematic or just sweet.”—Toni Morrison

Black History is much more than a month and is reflective of us all each and every day.  None told this story better than Morrison, born in Ohio in  Feb., 1931.  As a novelist, editor and professor she shaped literature with the power of her epic themes, vivid dialogue and richly detailed characters. 
We will forever be in her debt for giving us such wonderful books as The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon and Beloved.

 Toni Morrison
She was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012 capping a writing life that also  included the Pulitzer Prize, American Book Award, Nobel Prize for her life’s body of work.  Her craftsmanship inspires writers to reach deeper within themselves in hopes of emulating even a small part of what she achieved on the page.
