Curtis Bauer In this exercise you will explore the multidimensionality of a poem, essay, or story by “living with” the author and translator: reading and thinking about their work every day for a week. This is a multi-step assignment so read carefully and make sure you plan in advance.
This year's LitFest was held virtually, with authors, poets, and literature lovers joining from all around the world. Editor in Chief Jennifer Acker hosted two readings at LitFest: one with The Common's student interns, and one with Amherst College alumni authors. Both events were recorded and can be watched below.
Unfortunately, we at The Common had to cancel our trip to San Antonio, but I hope you'll join me and Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Acker via video conference to chat about The Common's classroom program and our supportive resources for teachers and students.
