Paine Hall, 3 Oxford Street, Cambridge

The recently released documentary Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am, is an artful and intimate meditation on the legendary storyteller. The film examines Morrison's life, works, and the powerful themes she has confronted throughout her literary career. It features interviews with Morrison and a number of her peers, critics, and colleagues, including HDS’s Davíd Carrasco, Neil L. Rudenstine Professor of the Study of Latin America.

HDS is hosting a screening of the film. Carrasco will give an introduction, and there there will be a Q&A and panel discussion with Carrasco and film editor Johanna Giebelhaus after the screening.

This event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Tickets are available beginning October 10. More information can be found at the Harvard Box Office.

Harvard Divinity School gratefully acknowledges the support of the Susan Shallcross Swartz Endowment for Christian Studies for this event.
