Bring Literature to Life

Special thanks to my English Comp students and their deep and insightful discussions based on our reading of the drama, Donovan’s Charge.

For those of you who signed the request sheet, we will gladly gift you a copy. (If you missed the opportunity, feel free to add your request as a comment to this post.) Thanks again, from both Glenn and myself, and continue to be courageous in these outrageous times. As in the play, let your spirit sound the charge! Also, be sure to sign up for our next Book Bogglers poetry reading at ASA College on April 7. Our theme–Illumination 2. (Let me know your availability so we can set up a date and time that works for all.)

Also– a bit last minute, but we are seeking students to read poems of your choice to honor Black History Month here at ASA College on 2/23, 3-5 pm. Please let me know if you plan to join us!

      And I am so glad that you did– and that you brought that honest and loving narrative recounting your mom’s disappearance, and much welcomed reappearance in your life.

      I will always recall the moment when you were quietly studying in your room– and there she appeared in the doorway. Really quite beautiful.


  • Raf Tan

    Hello. Raf here. I have something to share on Illuminations, April 7. It could take approximately 5 minutes. I will try to arrive before 4pm. Just an idea: Having a projector might be useful/effective, so the audience can read the poems as they’re being delivered.

    My name is Mingjiang Zheng. I enjoy this activity. Although I did not come to the stage to speak, but sitting here listening to me, feel the poems they read and their lives are very moved, and full of power. Although we all come from different countries, but after listening to their reading read, let me feel, we are for their own dreams and struggle, we all have a struggle in the process of shed tears and efforts of the achievements The It is good to be able to participate in this event.
