We will update the community as more information becomes available.

Love by Toni Morrison

Description of Love: The epitome of a group of women's ideals about love, fatherhood, and friendship, wealthy hotel owner Bill Cosey finds his life compromised by his troubled past and his feelings about a spellbinding woman named Celestial.

Toni Morrison has gained fame for an emotive, rhythmic writing style that achieves lushness with common words. The shame and cruelty of racism and sexual oppression are major themes, often framed in vividly depicted historical settings. Morrison challenges readers with unconventional plot structures, and difficult, complex characters who may evoke readers' pity, horror, sorrow, and joy by turns. Her characters' minds, hearts and souls are always the core of the story. Readers journey with them toward personal and societal enlightenment, touching upon natural and mythic experiences alike.
