#StayAtHomeReading #AtHomeWithIIE #AtHomeWithASM
From American Space Madrid and the library of the International Institute we launch the Reading and critical thinking club #StayAtHomeReading so you can continue to enjoy American literature from home. The activity is part of our #AtHomeWithASM #AtHomeWithIIE virtual programming.
This third virtual meeting will be dedicated to the analysis and debate of the story "Sonny's Blues" by James Baldwin.
This fifth virtual meeting will be dedicated to the analysis and debate of the story "Sonny's Blues" by James Baldwin, a key writer of North American literature whose work is dedicated to analyzing and denouncing racial and sexual discrimination. First published in 1957 in Partisan Review, can be obtained through the Internet in both English and Spanish. For those of you who prefer to read it in Spanish, we recommend the translation by Julio Patán, published in 2011 as part of the collection of Reading material of Literature UNAM.
After an individualized reading, the work will be discussed in a group using the zoom tool. We will have the moderation of Karen Secrist, PhD. who will make a brief introduction, ask questions, lead and encourage the debate. Soon, we will circulate a reading guide so that you can prepare questions and reflections for the session.
Those registered for this activity will receive before the session a message to the email that is provided as a contact with instructions on how to participate in this virtual debate.
