Prof. Evelyn Schreiber brought this cake to the department lounge today. It’s one layer of a birthday cake made to celebrate Toni Morrison’s 80th birthday at the Library of Congress last year. (This layer spent a year in Prof. Schreiber’s freezer.)
Here is the cake in its original incarnation:
This layer represents Morrison’s latest novel, A Mercy. It’s also got a nice message from Evelyn.
Slices might still exist. Hurry now to the lounge for yours!
