Pulitzer award-winning writer and Nobel Prize recipient Toni Morrison once said: “We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.”

The author of 11 novels passed away peacefully, while surrounded by family and friends, following complications of pneumonia.

A statement released by her family said, “The consummate writer who treasured the written word, whether her own, her students or others, she read voraciously and was most at home when writing. Although her passing represents a tremendous loss, we are grateful she had a long, well-lived life.”

We’re highlighting the admirable author as well as turning the spotlight on other inspiring female authors whose books you should add to your reading list. Read on for more.
