Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-An easy-to-read and entertaining look at the life of the African-American novelist and Nobel Prize winner. Century chronicles Morrison's full and productive career as educator, editor, mentor, mother, and writer. Her tutorial relationship with many of the prominent black leaders of the 1960s and '70s is explored. A strength of the book is the inclusion of information about how Morrison developed her works. Numerous black-and-white photographs show the subject at various stages of her life. A readable account that will also make a good reference source for report writers.-Valerie Childress, J.W. Holloway Middle School, Whitehouse, TX

I FELT THIS BOOK WAS EXCELLENT FOR ALL AGES. IT WAS INTERESTING IN THE FACT THAT WE GOT TO READ HOW TONI MORRISON GOT IDEAS FOR HER BOOKS. SHE SEEMS TO BE A VERY DOWN TO EARTH PERSON. SO IS DOUGLAS CENTURY! I HAVE MET HIM SEVERAL TIMES AND HE IS VERY SERIOUS ABOUT HIS WRITING. I LOOK FORWARD TO MORE OF HIS WORK. HOPEFULLY MORE WORK HAVING TO DO WITH ANOTHER AUTOBIOGRAPHY??
