Morrison is a novelist, editor, and professor, best known for her novels Beloved, The Bluest Eye, Sula, and Song of Solomon. She has garnered acclaim for her epic power, ear for dialogue, and for her poetically-charged, expressive depictions of Black America. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 1988, the Nobel Prize in 1993, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012.

Morrison will be introduced by UCSC Professor Angela Y. Davis.

This is a sold-out show, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear Toni Morrison! We’ll have it live on The Great 88 on Saturday October 25th from 4 to 5 pm.

Abbey Road

They portray the Fab Four with tight harmonies, flawless note for note renditions of Beatles hits, custom–tailored costumes, and precise attention to every detail. These four premier Beatles tribute musicians also recreate the wit and charm of the Beatles, including the Fab Four’s cheeky personalities, familiar onstage banter and patter between songs. More than just a Beatles tribute concert, In My Life gives the audience a chance to “be there” at pivotal moments in the extraordinary career of the Beatles – from Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club, to the Ed Sullivan Show, Shea Stadium’s 50,000 + screaming fans and their final live performance on the rooftop of their Apple Corp offices.
