Book Discussion: “Jazz” by Toni Morrison

April 10, 2017, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Kinohi Nishikawa of Princeton University’s English and African American Studies departments leads a discussion of Morrison’s award-winning novel.

Set in 1920s Harlem, the book explores how the lives and loves of three characters intertwine in much the same way musicians play off each other to create a jazz suite. Learn about Morrison’s inspiration for the novel, take a virtual tour of the arts of the Jazz Age, and share your own thoughts on this deeply moving story.  Location: Quiet Room of PPL

Part of Jazz Appreciation Month. Co-sponsored by the library and the Arts Council of Princeton.
