Want to learn more about writer, editor, and Nobel Literature prize winner Toni Morrison? Don’t miss the documentary The Pieces I am, which is in theaters now. Morrison talks about her childhood and paints a picture for viewers of this brilliant woman whom we know for her teachings, editing and writing. She is now in her eighties and has been enriching students, readers and the public, nationally and internationally, with her gifts for years. She knows what makes for good writing and works her craft to publish her works and for decades helped other writers become successful.
Like many, Morrison relies on her instincts. In The Pieces I Am, Morrison mentioned that while writing Song of Solomon, she knew that her father would guide her writing, and he did. “I trust my gut,”she said.
