'I Didnt Know That I Could Fly Until You Showed Me' - Remembering Toni Morrison

By Ezequiel 5 Sep 2020

Portrait of Toni Morrison


To celebrate the life and work of Toni Morrison, a year ago today the Young Vic presented an evening of shared readings of her work. Hosted by Kwame Kwei-Armah, the event marked a moment to listen to and to celebrate the work of Toni Morrison – one of the most influential and important writers of her generation. This e-book collates the notes left by the audience at that celebration - in tribute and in gratitude - as well as quotes from the passages read.
