In class today we read and discussed “Finding Prosperity by Feeding Monkeys,” by Harold Taw (Bedford Reader, p. 110) — Here’s the NPR audio, if you’re interested.
I also assigned the intros to Narration (pp. 81-89) and Description (pp. 137-143) for Monday, and Sarah Vowell’s essay “Shooting Dad” (p. 154) for Tuesday. This is all part of our preparation for the first revised essay we will begin soon. How soon? Very soon.
