The series will also include a free virtual screening of “The Pieces I Am,” a documentary of Morrison’s life, hosted by Ithaca’s Cinemapolis theatre, with a live discussion of the film on Feb. 20.

“This ‘Toni Morrison at 90’ celebration brings retrospection on her life and work, but from a proximity that retains living recollections of her presence,” said Anne Adams, Cornell professor emerita of Africana studies and one of the organizers of the event.
