SOLD OUT: “Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am”

August 19, 2019, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

This screening is now completely sold out.

This documentary examines the life of American novelist, essayist, editor, teacher, and professor emeritus at Princeton University Toni Morrison who died this month at the age of 88. Morrison was the first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature and is known for her nuanced discussion of race in America. Through the use of archival material, art and interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Angela Davis and Morrison herself, the film presents pieces of Morrison’s life, from her childhood in the working-class steel town of Lorain, Ohio, to her journey as a novelist and public intellectual. 1 hour, 59 minutes.

The library will be offering a limited number of free tickets to cardholders. The tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Welcome Desk starting Friday, Aug. 16. (two tickets per cardholder only).
