Class times: Mondays, Wednesdays, noon-3 pm.
Course tuition: noncredit, undergraduate, and graduate credit $2,700.
Adolescents are the most demanding readers of narrative. To them, story is everything. Understanding what makes adolescent literature successful helps answer the most elemental questions about storytelling. Reading writers like the Grimms, C.S. Lewis, Salinger, Cooper, Pratchett, Rowling, Pullman, and Mieville, we analyze what makes adolescent literature simultaneously deep, fun, and meaningful. (4 credits)
