Show Notes

Part II:  Tori, and her guest co-host, Patrick A. Howell, continue discussing the art of literature, living, legacy and being human with one of the world’s most versatile and admired writers. 100 years ago, the Harlem Renaissance began, and a hundred years from now, the world will be celebrating his legacy. He has received a Grammy, NAACP Image awards, the Los Angeles Review of Books/UCR Lifetime Legacy Achievement Award and PEN America’s Lifetime Achievement Award. They talk about his historic first as a winner of the National Book Foundation’s most prestigious award, the Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He’s the first African American man to win the award. Previous recipients of the lifetime legacy award have included Isabel Alleende, Maxine Hong Kingston, Stephen King, Norman Mailer and Toni Morrison. They also talk about what’s inspiring him right now, how he defines success, some of his other works, and so much more! Here’s to our beloved master storyteller, Walter Mosley.
