I read a bunch of dusty old tomes as an undergrad, but now I'd like to read something a little more fun!
I majored in English in college and I'd like to put all that training to some good use! I'm also relatively new to the area, so I thought this might be a good way to get out and meet some new and interesting people.
Faulker's "As I Lay Dying", Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men", "The Handmaid’s Tale" by Margaret Atwood, and "Slaughterhouse-Five" by Kurt Vonnegut.
I studied medieval literature, so lots of that, but lately for fun I've been trying to read some more contemporary works, which I would broadly say has meant anything written since the Civil War. I'm currently reading Mark Twain's Autobiography.
