Toni Morrison and Junot Diaz
Junot Diaz interviewed Toni Morrison last Thursday and it was broadcast live on YouTube, sponsored by New York Public Library. I hadn't heard about the event before last Thursday and when a good friend of mine sent me the link, I damn near crashed my car. Toni Morrison is my favorite author of all time and Junot Diaz is fastly moving up my list.
It was like I died and went to literary nerd heaven. I pretty much scream announced it on Twitter every five minutes as I was watching (sorry about that). In case you missed it... or if I'm honest, in case I want to watch it again (okay, okay, when I want to watch it again), here is the link. The talk was amazing. As usual, I appreciated Junot Diaz's raw, unapologetic voice (which actually translates well from paper to person) and Toni Morrison's... well... Toni 'Freakin' Morrison.
Love and Light,
