Reading Nonfiction Thursday, September 24 10:00-10:45 a.m. ET Online
Nonfiction supposedly tells the truth, but how do writers find creativity within this construction of the truth? Join us as we discuss influential and cutting-edge nonfiction texts.
Reading Fiction Thursday, October 15 10:00-10:45 a.m. ET Online
Fiction offers escape, excitement, and window into a world of possibilities whose limits we don’t yet know. Learn about the various genres of fiction, the formulas that they follow, and the rules that they break.
Reading Criticism Thursday, November 19 10:00-10:45 a.m. ET Online
Read any good books lately? Seen any good movies? Reading criticism can give you the language to describe your judgments of art. Sometimes, the criticism is just as exciting as the work it describes. Join us as we examine texts by several insightful and incisive critics.
