An Expansive Mind Dies, Toni Morrison Was 88

Very sad news about a not-to-miss-author with an expansive mind.  What a loss to the world.  She really was that good.

The first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, Ms. Morrison was the author of 11 novels as well as children’s books and essay collections. Among them were celebrated works like “Song of Solomon,” which received the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1977, and “Beloved,” which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1988.
