This week, we are going to have a conversation about Beauty Salon and Station Eleven.
Before you begin this discussion, make sure you go through the extra readings and lectures for this week. You are going to post a reader response to these books.
Keep in mind, that this post is NOT about if you liked the books or not (there is an optional discussion post about that).
I want you to think about WHY Mario Bellatin and Emily St. John Mandel wrote these books.
- What are the themes?
- How do you relate to those?
- What messages are they trying to get us to discuss?
I will push back and argue with you or ask follow-up questions to get you to dig deeper.
This post should be AT LEAST 5 paragraphs.
Consider it a mini-essay. The point value is higher because I am asking you to do more.
