Toni Morrison at The MacDowell Colony

Toni Morrison was honored this summer with the 2016 Edward MacDowell Medal at The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire. My sister and I attended the ceremony and related festivities, and did our fair share of cheering, picnicking, and exploring the Colony grounds, which are located about half an hour’s drive from where we grew up. Medal Day is the one day each year when this renowned artist’s colony opens to the public, and Toni Morrison brought record crowds. It was a day I’ll never forget and I’m still filled with gratitude.
