The life of local celebrity and Nobel prize-winning author Toni Morrison is re-examined in this exhibit curated by local novelist, Brenda Ross. The exhibit covers a refreshing set of Morrison’s life lessons offering a glimpse of her not well-explored before, including her insights on the creative process, Black women and feminism, and capturing ‘the Black voice’. Learn how she usually begins her novels at its end, her opinion about writer’s block, and how writing is similar to acting—you become that character, and much more.
This is the first exhibit of the Historical Society of the Nyacks’ new museum on the first floor of the DePew Building at 50 Piermont Ave. and is open to the public from 1 to 4pm on Saturdays. Reservations are no longer required, but occupancy will be limited on a first come-first served basis. Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
