Tune in to the next episode of Crossroads of Rockland History on

Monday, June 21, 2021, 9:30 am, on WRCR Radio 1700AM

Clare Sheridan will welcome author Brenda Ross, curator of the new exhibition at the Historical Society of the Nyacks on the life of the local celebrity and Nobel Prize–winning author Toni Morrison. The exhibit covers a refreshing set of Morrison’s life lessons and offers a glimpse of her that has not been well explored before, including her insights on the creative process, Black women and feminism, and capturing “the Black voice.”

Learn how Morrison usually begins her novels at their end; her opinion about writer’s block; how writing is similar to acting as the writer becomes the character; and much more. This is the first exhibit to open in the Historical Society of the Nyacks’ new museum space on the first floor of the DePew Building at 50 Piermont Avenue. It is open to the public on Saturdays, 1
4 pm. 

About Brenda Ross:  Brenda Ross has honed her craft through years of writing workshops. She holds a bachelor of arts in creative writing from SUNY Empire State College. Her acclaimed novel, Bibsy, was completed in the Novel Writing course at Sarah Lawrence College.
