Above: A Mercy book cover
by Toni Morrison with Dr. Camille Forbes, Literature Dept, UCSD
Nobel laureate Toni Morrison returns more explicitly to the net of pain cast by slavery, a theme she detailed so memorably in Beloved. Set at the close of the 1600s, the book details America's untoward foundation: dominion over Native Americans, white indentured workers, women and African and Native American slaves.
This book discussion will be held at the downtown location of the San Diego Public Library at 6:30 PM.
