Join us for a four-week series exploring the life and works of Nobel laureate, Toni Morrison. Her trilogy Beloved, Jazz, and Paradise gathers time from the 1800s to 1970s. In these novels, Morrison’s characters translate history into personal detail, exploring the complicated mix of race, personality, and national identity in American life. These discussions will be led by Dr. Karen Arnold, former poet-in-residence at Montpelier Arts Center and discussion moderator for multiple literature groups in Baltimore. Read with us and view the film Beloved; add your voice to the conversation! Each session will include introductory comments followed by an in-depth discussion of the Morrison books. Viewing of the film Beloved will be part of the two sessions.
