Presidential Medals of Freedom

Toni Morrison

Last week the White House announced that Toni Morrison (author of Beloved and the recently published, Home) and Shimon Peres (Israeli president and author of the biography, Ben-Gurion) will be two of the thirteen people to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Presented to "individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors," this is the nation's highest civilian honor. Presentations will be made to this year's recipients at the White House later this spring.
