Toni Morrison Reads From Novel-In-Progress

by Hyun Ju Park

Last night, I took a group of my high school students to see Toni Morrison read at Rutgers University — Newark to and the audiences surprise, she read from a novel-in-progress. I simply can’t capture the electricity in the room and the joy (Morrison has a great sense of humor in addition to sharp insight) but suffice to say everyone gasped when she concluded her except with the following sentence:

“The two men shook hands and held eyes, as if goodbye meant what it once did: God be with you.”
