As a tribute to one of the greatest writers of all time Chloe Anthony Wofford Toni Morrison aka simply known as Toni Morrison who recently passed away on the 5th of August 2019, we a group of people on instagram started a #tonimorrisonreadathon in her honour. This readathon was started by Vidya a bookstagrammer and soon there were many who had engaged in this tribute. Well a tribute given by reading and discussing her books is a great way to pay our respects, so I picked up the novel ‘beloved’ and started off with the journey.
