I came back from fall break yesterday (Monday) and immediately was reentered into the flurry of LC life! I had many things on my schedule today including two outside of class lecture events: Literary Agency (all about the publishing world) and A Civil Conversation: Oregon's School-to-Prison Pipeline. Both were extremely informative and thought provoking. As an English Major, I am now highly considering a career in publishing and want to look for an internship this summer to learn more about it.
Since I was just discussing my English Major, in my English 300 class, we have started Ulysses by James Joyce (we will be reading this for 5 weeks and it feels like an initiation into a frat), one of the numerous short stories I've read for Short Story 200, but my favorite thus far, Sonny's Blues by James Baldwin and in Gender in Relationships 300, The Myth of Mars and Venus: Do men and women really speak different languages? Outside of class, I am just starting Fight Club and a new Scifi book that I can't recall the title of at the moment.
