For this week, we're going to read Harper Lee's stunning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. There are few books that still provoke me after the third-- or seventh-- reading, and this is one of them! I hope you love it as much as I do.
After watching the intro video, scroll down and push play on the second (note: it's an audio interview, not a real video). This is the only known recording of Harper Lee discussing her book, as she fiercely guarded her privacy.
Finally, read this week's handout by Brent Staples, "Just Walk on By: Black Men in Public Space." It's a powerful piece that lends itself to deeper introspection about the assumptions we make every day, and the assumption made about us.
As for your homework, turn in the study guides for O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night, then answer the three questions at the end of the Staples essay. Post them below.
Miss you all! Happy Easter!
