Course Description

Welcome this semester to stories of youth. We begin with the luminous Anthony Doerr's New York Times bestseller All the Light You Cannot See. We follow with James Baldwin's prize-winning autobiographical classic Go Tell It on the Mountain. Next is Vivian Gornick's fabulous memoir, Fierce Attachments. Then we read Ruth Ozeki's letter in a bottle story, A Tale for the Time Being. Last is The Song of the Lark, by early 20th cen­tury novelist, Willa Cather. Feel free to bring a snack or bag lunch.
