Memoir and Testimony was crowded with twice as many students as expected. We had to pull out an extra table! It was fantastic--lively, deep, and intense. Teaching felt easy; I knew what to say and how and when to say it, and fell in love with everyone around the table. At the very end, we went around and I had each student read a sentence or two from their in-class writing. An amazing collage of personal stories, family histories, confessions, snatches of dialogue, description, and commentary emerged. I am so glad I get to teach this class!!!
