Our Open House and Toni Morrison Tribute
Our Open House this afternoon brought together a wide variety of English Department community members, everyone from first-year students to graduating seniors, as well as graduate students, alums, and of course faculty. Thanks to all who came! We closed the event with a tribute to Toni Morrison led by Professor Evelyn Schreiber. It was moving not only to listen carefully to evocative and inspirational passages from Morrison’s works chosen by participants, but to hear stories of her influence on our lives and our understanding of the power of literature. We hope to have more such events in the future.
