Teaching

I love taking my students to literary readings at the ​​92Y​, where authors come together to read and discuss their work. Over the years, my students and I had the privilege of hearing such literary giants as Tony Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Amy Tan, Martin Amis, Jamaica Kincaid, Orhan Pamuk, and many others!
