Lit Circle Discussion

Filed under: TOUCHING SNOW — erinlbowman @ 8:35 pm

Hey all,

I think that our discussion on Thursday brought a lot out of the book that simply reading it alone would not have come up. I enjoyed discussing whether we thought that this book was good, or if it was just a book that was hard to put down. I came into class absolutely loving the book, but left class questioning how much I had really thought about what was covered in the story, and the light that it puts Haitian immigrants in.

If anyone else would like to read this, I would love to see what you think about it! Let me know and you can borrow it!

  1. Erin, what are your criteria for “good” vs. “hard to put down?” Can you be more specific?

    Are you familiar w/the Commonsensemedia site? Here’s a discussion of TS you may not have seen which no doubt raises some of the same issues you did about the book. Do read.

    You can learn a bit more about Felin at the National Book Foundation site.

    There’s a picture of her and an interesting piece (publisher’s website) from Felin about the origins of the novel. KES
