Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am

"Reminds us how long she had to wait for the recognition she so richly deserved, and what a distinctive, generous, funny, astute, self-doubting, unstoppable and formidable figure she was along the way." Wall St Journal

We Are Parable have teamed up with the Lexi to present a special preview of this film about this beloved writer. This generous, admiring documentary explores the writer's work - perhaps the best known of which are books Beloved, Song of Solomon and The Blue Eye - and it features interviews with Barack Obama, Angela Davis and Oprah Winfrey, among others.

We’re thrilled to announce there will also be readings of Morrison’s work after the screening, courtesy of students from QPCS. Join us as we celebrate a literary legend!

"It’s less a biography than an extended essay, which is entirely a good thing.  If you want a thorough documentation of everything Morrison has done and everyone she knows, there’s always Wikipedia. But if you’d prefer an argument for her importance and a sense of her presence, then you won’t be disappointed."  A O Scott, NY Times
