Toni Morrison's papers to be housed at Princeton

The Associated Press

PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) The papers of Nobel laureate Toni Morrison are now part of the permanent library collection of Princeton University.

Princeton made the announcement Friday, shortly before the 83-year-old Morrison took part in a forum at the school where she served on the faculty for 17 years.

The renowned author's papers contain about 180 linear feet of research materials documenting her life, work and writing methods. They include manuscripts, drafts and proofs of many of Morrison's novels. Materials for her children's literature, lyrics, lectures, correspondence and more are also part of the collection.

Additional manuscripts and papers will be added over time, beginning with the manuscript of Morrison's next novel, which is expected to be published in the spring.

Morrison won the Pulitzer Prize for her novel "Beloved" in 1988.
