Homework for 11/7 and 11/9

Homework for 11/7

Homework for 11/9

  • Read “On Pandering” by Claire Vaye Watkins
  • Read Marlon James’s response on Facebook (and any of the 43 comments you feel like diving into)
  • Listen to this NPR story with both writers.
  • Lastly, find a book cover you find is offensive in some way. (Remember how Vivian Lee said she wants her books’ designs to focus on the stories, not their “diverse” elements? Find a book you think does a bad job at this, in any way–race-wise, gender-wise, sexuality-wise, disability-wise, etc. I’ll pull them up on the overhead in class.)
