L2L Toni Morrison (ft. Carol Andrews, pt. II)
Toni Morrison recently left us. She was a writer of novels, short stories, and acute commentary that managed to be both inclusive and applicable. She was lauded by the Nobel Committee, Oprah Winfrey, and the U.S. government, among others. This week, Leigh and P. T. continue discussing the lessons, layers, and legacy of Toni Morrison. Guest Carol Andrews, professor emerita of literature who has taught courses on Morrison’s novels, helps us examine her Nobel lecture and the allusions to other American literature (and beyond) she wove into her work.
