The opportunity to share a quote from authors who have inspired, uplifted, or enlightened me over my many years of living and reading is a beautiful thing.  And, I am grateful to Silver Threading for hosting her weekly event.

This week, I selected a quote by Toni Morrison:

Toni Morrison is a well-known American novelist, editor, and professor.  Even though her work typically focuses on Black women, she does not define her it as feminist.

Morrison first novel, “The Bluest Eye,” was published in 1970.  There have been nine novels released since that time.  She released her last novel, “Home,” in 2012.  But, in 2015, a new novel, “God Help The Child,” will publish in 2015.  Her best known novels were:

  • The Bluest Eye
  • Song of Solomon
  • Beloved

For Beloved she received the:  Pulitzer Prize (1988)American Book Award (1988) and Nobel Prize in 1993.

Morrison, also, shared her gift of writing through:

  • Children’s Literature
  • Short Fiction
  • Operatic Words (Libretto)
  • Plays
  • Non-Fiction

Born in 1931, Morrison celebrated her 84th Birthday on February 18.

  1. Excellent quote. I read “Beloved,” and was blown away by the story. I get emotionally vested within a story like that, and the impressions never leave me. I did not get the same feelings with the movie, so I will choose the book every time. Thank you for sharing Toni Morrison’s other works too. ❤
