Oprah Winfrey helped honor a Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winner author in Chicago Wednesday night.

Winfrey sat down for a conversation with Toni Morrison at the UIC forum. It happened right after Morrison was presented with the Carl Sandburg Literary Award.

Oprah has chosen Morrison's novels for the book club on her show four times. Morrison's most recent novel "A Mercy" is the fall book selection in Chicago's "One Book, One Chicago" program.
