Toni Morrison Book Discussion: “Jazz”

February 15 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

The Lorain Public Library System has announced several programs planned in celebration of Toni Morrison Day!

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.

A Book Discussion about Toni Morrison’s “Jazz” will take place from 6-7 p.m., Feb. 15. Gloria Buxton, a local arts educator and community activist, will lead a discussion on the novel. Copies of the novel are available at the library. This event will take place in person and online.

Preregistration required.
