Before I get things kicked off this week, I would like to take a moment to reflect on the life of one of the greatest American writers, Toni Morrison. The author of classics such as Beloved, Song of Solomon, and The Bluest Eye has transitioned to become an ancestor. With her passing, we lose a literary titan and a voice for the unheard. Her mastery of imagery and character development have opened readers to worlds often hiding in plain sight. Do yourself a favor and purchase some of her work. Grab a book (or two) for a loved one, neighbor, or a child. You’ll be blessing them with the gift.
