It’s still possible to hear Nobel Laureate author and poet Toni Morrison read from her latest fiery novel “God Help the Child,” despite the sold-out status of the Feb. 2 event in Park Slope.

That’s because the Brooklyn Public Library is raffling off a limited number of free tickets to BPL card holders.

A Nobel Laureate, Pulitzer Award winner and Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree, Morrison will read from her latest book at Congregation Beth Elohim (CBE). This event, which begins at 7:30 p.m., is part of the “Brooklyn by the Book” series, a literary series presented in partnership with Brooklyn Public Library, CBE and Community Bookstore.

“God Help the Child” was released in April, 2015, and quickly made the New York Times Best-Seller List.

Readers interested in winning these raffle tickets may visit the Toni Morrison webpage on BPL’s site: http://www.bklynlibrary.org/brooklyn-book-toni-morris. Contestants can request up to two tickets to the event.

Entries must be received by midnight on Jan. 24. The drawing will take place on Monday, Jan. 25. Winners will be contacted no later than Jan. 27.

Those wishing to obtain a BPL library card for the first time, or to update their existing card to the new system established in 2014, can do so through this link: http://www.bklynlibrary.org/borrowing-materials.
