Toni Morrison, one of America's most celebrated authors, has already received a Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Nobel Prize in Literature.

She'll soon add one more honor to that list: the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Morrison is slated to receive the award on May 29.
