Heir to William Faulkner, kin to Ralph Ellison, fulfillment of Zora Neal Hurston’s hopes, Toni Morrison strides across late twentieth-century American literature as few others can. Her novels are nothing short of electrical: shocking, illuminating, deceptively tame, lethal. Over seven weeks, we’ll read four of her best works, plus one short book of essays about American literary history. Join us for an incredible journey far out of your comfort zone and into the wilds of American culture where we can “listen to the spaces that the long-ago singing (has) left behind.”
