Morrison Awarded French Legion of Honor

American author Toni Morrison was made an officer in the French Legion of Honor society in a ceremony on November 3, 2010 in Paris. Frédéric Mitterrand, Minister of Culture and Communication, told Morrison, “You incarnate what’s most beautiful about America.” The award recognizes significant contributions to France and French culture.

Morrison said, “I’ve always felt welcomed in France and especially in Paris, and it’s important to me, the receipt of this medal, the Legion of Honor, because now I know in addition to being welcomed, I am prized.”
