The Source of Self-Regard by Toni Morrison
Recommended by Marjorie P.
I began reading Toni Morrison when I was in college in the 80s. Her fictional works captivated me and I am thankful to my professors at Ohio State for making a few of them required reading. This opportunity to read her essays, speeches, and meditations, has allowed me to reconnect with this amazing literary giant. Morrison gives perspective and insight to topics ranging from literature and art, to race and politics. She teaches us in her very special way, how to move on without forgetting. I feel proud to have such an inspirational author come from Ohio.
