Try something New in 2021 with the Toni Morrison Book Club!

Join the conversation about one of America’s most important novelists. The series is a collaboration between BAPL and Lehigh University. Moderators are Stephanie Powell Watts, Jasmine Woodson, Stacie Brennan, and Rayah Levy, Head of Adult Services at BAPL. Levy notes that despite being works of fiction, Morrison’s works powerfully represent the voices of the voiceless. Of the year-long book club she says: “Even though I have read some of Toni Morrison’s books before, the experience of complete submersion has been a renaissance, a rediscovery of a woman that is now imprinted in my psyche.”

It is a year-long series, so there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.

The series next meets on April 29 with Song of Solomon, Morrison’s third published novel. The club will meet online from 6:30-8:00. For more information and to book a spot, visit www.bapl.org/events/toni-morrison-book-club-3
