Think About: First-Year Reading

We’re taking a break from our normal schedule of postings because we know that many of you have received Loving Day and are anxious to get started!

In the next few days you will see additional information in the Reminders section of your myBucknell regarding where and how to upload your essay.  In the meantime, you can start reading with this essay prompt in mind:

“It could be argued that a longing for home is the driving force behind Loving Day’s narrative.  Choose a character – Warren, Tal, Tosh or Spider – and consider the role racial identity plays in the way he or she imagines home.  Which character’s idea or experience of home is most similar to your own and why?”
