As the world grieves the loss of one of our most legendary voices, Brazos Bookstore invites Houstonians to gather for an evening of remembrance as we honor Toni Morrison and her work.

This event is BYOB (Bring.Your.Own.Book)
Wine & water will be served.

Pick your favorite Toni Morrison book, essay, or speech, and bring it with you to the store! Bring a few! Pick a favorite passage to share with the group!

The event will be a casual and intimate, round table discussion about Morrison's work and the impact it's had on our lives. The discussion will be moderated by community member and Rice University scholar, Emerson Zora Hamsa.

Emerson Zora Hamsa is a fourth-year doctoral researcher in the English Department at Rice University. Zora's research fields are 19th Century and 20th Century United States literature and African-American literature. Zora is currently writing a dissertation that explores memory, spatial affect, and plantation discourse in post-slavery American literature. Zora currently teaches an undergraduate literature course at Rice University titled "Black Gender(s) and the Afterlives of Slavery: An Introduction to African-American Literature," a course that provides an introduction to the Afro-American literary tradition through critical examination of narrative representations of gender(s), specifically Black women and Black girls, and their relationship to Black life in the wake of slavery. Zora collects fountain pens, Blackwing pencils, and paper, and Zora often shares photos of these items on Instagram (@zorahzora). Zora tweets from @zorafuture, a personal Twitter account.
