What’s New?

Upcoming programs, what we’re reading, + whom we’re listening to these days!

This week, we remember Toni Morrison Z”L.

“If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, you must be the one to write it.”

This week, we read Toni’s words and remember her light. In times like this, we defer to Oprah’s list of the 12 most groundbreaking Toni Morrison books to read right now.

“We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That be the measure of our lives.”
