Toni Morrison is coming to town and you better have your library card.

Toni Morrison, Nobel Laureate, literary hero and one of the only good things you were forced to read in high school, is coming to Brooklyn. She’s doing a discussion and reading from her new book God Help the Child, at the Congregation Beth Elohim in Park Slope on Feb. 2. If you want to buy tickets, too bad, because they’ve been sold out for awhile. But the Brooklyn Public Library, which is cosponsoring the event has a few FREE tickets to raffle off this week. Find out how to enter below. 

To enter, fill out this form. You must be a Brooklyn Public Library cardholder to quality. Don’t have a card? You can get one here, which you should do, because what would Toni Morrison think if you didn’t have one?

Entries must be received by Midnight Jan. 24 (Sunday). The drawing will take place on Monday, and winners will be contacted by Jan. 27. If you want to try to buy a ticket still, put your name on the waitlist here.

The event starts at 7:30 on Feb. 2 at CBE, 274 Garfield Pl. in Park Slope.
