Author of the Month


Toni Morrison was an American novelist, essayist, book editor and college professor. She won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993 and the Pulitzer Prize in 1988 for her novel Beloved.

We’ve chosen Toni Morrison for our Author of the Month for March – we’ve been reading some of her books recently such as Tar Baby and Sula, and Beloved is one of our best-selling books in the bookshop.
