The Toni Morrison event held here at SUNY Cortland overall was a very heartfelt yet educational presentation all in one. There were many speakers which took on a different aspect of Mrs. Morrisons writing which went from personal experiences, from topics she greatly touched upon in her writing. Overall I believe that the presentation was very well planned and was an enjoyable experience.
One quote that was brought up that I really enjoyed was “if you want to read a book that hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it”. This stood out to me because it really made me think, we can be searching for stories that don’t exist yet, but those stories can be ones of our own. From all the individuals who presented it seems that Toni Morrison has had a great impact on a lot of lives.
All in all I think that this event was worth going to. It was well presented, very organized, and a lot of students and faculty went. I think my school does a fabulous job if hosting different events for students and I am looking forward to the next one. -Andrea Moro
