Toni Morrison: Homage to a Great Writer

November 10, 2019 - 10:15am

“I don’t believe there is a writer who understood America better and loved it with more ferocity than Toni Morrison. Her genius and her humanity invite us to imagine a different sense of who we are, even now, and where, together, we might decide we are going.”

These words are from Tracy K. Smith, former poet laureate of the United States, who describes the enormous impact Toni Morrison’s work had on her readers and humankind throughout the world.

Barbara Leo will present a reading by Ms. Morrison, which also pays homage to her as a great writer and humanitarian. You are encouraged to bring your thoughts and memories of how this writer may have touched your life.

All are invited to the one-hour service, sponsored by the Upper Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, which will be held in Room 102 of the Narrowsburg Union, Narrowsburg, NY. Directions can be found at
