A “deep dive” into the fictional oeuvre of the Lorain native and Nobel Prize-winning author that provides participants four weeks of preparation for each session due to the dense nature and intricate artistry of Morrison’s prose. Explore the work of a local hero and one of the greatest writers of all time.
Reader series classes take you on a deep dive into specific topic or author to gain a more advanced understanding of literature and the world. Experienced instructors will provide history, context, and analysis, and guide in-depth discussion that will help make you an instant expert in a single subject or author’s body of work.
Each participant can decide how they choose to engage with the classes. You can read the books ahead of time, read them as the class progresses, or read them after the class has concluded. No matter your level of prior knowledge, you will receive a wealth of materials and insights in a condensed period, like a masterclass or a great course, only right here in Cleveland.
Love Is: An Exploration of Toni Morrison's Literature takes place the third Saturday of each month from 10a-12pm at Lake Erie Ink (2843 Washington Blvd, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118).
