“…the most sustained love of mine…”

From the nypl.org site

“I think the most sustained love of mine,” Díaz has said, “the one that’s carried me through all these years, is my relationship with Toni Morrison. I’m telling you, I’m one of those people who’s still cracking my head on many of the ideas Toni Morrison both suggested and elaborated on in her work.” Witness a powerful event as Díaz comes face to face with his literary hero to celebrate her remarkable career.

Just in case you haven’t see this on YouTube already, here is the conversation between Junot Díaz and Toni Morrison. More proof that libraries can do amazing things.

There is also a part in the conversation where Toni Morrison discusses working as a page and in the cataloging department at a public library when she was growing up. 🙂
