The Cotsen Children’s Library proudly presents “They’ve Got Game: The Children’s Books of Toni & Slade Morrison,” a special exhibition currently on display inside the Bookscape gallery.

In a nine book collaboration spanning well over a decade, Toni and Slade Morrison deftly crafted stories around themes such as individualism, independence of thought, family connections, freedom, imagination, and the empowerment of self. Visitors to Cotsen can enjoy viewing handwritten letters and pages by Toni Morrison, the charming illustrations of artist Pascal Lemaître, and even some 2004 fan art from a New Jersey third grader!

Additional blog posts and related children’s programming will be announced soon.
