Summary
"Sheer Good Fortune, " hosted by Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, and Joanne Gabbin in fall 2012, was an evening devoted to honoring Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison, an American novelist, editor, and professor. The celebration of her literary legacy took place in Virginia Tech's Burruss Hall Auditorium. This documentary includes footage from the event, as well as supplemental interviews with Morrison's peers and literary heirs. Writers, artists, and scholars read her work and talk about the magic of her writing, how it subverts easy assumptions, and how its lyricism and spiritualism take our breath away"--
