Jazz Concert at Lorain Library
February 17 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
In 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed House Bill 325, which officially designates Feb. 18, the birthday of the Nobel-prize-winning author, as Toni Morrison Day in Ohio.
Morrison was born and raised in Lorain and worked for Lorain Public Library System for a short time until she was fired for spending time reading the books she was meant to be shelving.
The public in encouraged to attend a number of free programs at the Main Library, 351 W. Sixth St. in downtown Lorain.
Join Lorain Public Library at the Main Library as they celebrate Toni Morrison Day in Ohio with a jazz concert presented by Aanya Sengupta, a DownBeat Student Award for Outstanding Performance by an Undergraduate College jazz vocalist. Aanya is currently a student at the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music. No pre-registration required.
