I was first introduced to Toni Morrison’s work in a college class called “Faulkner, O’Connor, and Morrison.” I think this was fall of my senior year, so this would have been in 1990. What I do know is that I still consider this class one of the most pivotal courses I ever took. I loved it and I loved my professor, one of several greats in our English department.
