The fall semester starts up this week (seriously, where did the summer go??), so I’m bringing you a post that is a little different than what I usually do. About a month ago I was asked to take over an American literature class that focuses on fiction from 1899/1900. This is a little out of my comfort zone, but I’m really excited to have a class full of actual English majors and read a few books that are completely new to me (I hadn’t even heard of Pauline Hopkins until now!).
I rarely read new books, so if you’re like me and enjoy some older fiction, take a look at the books below and follow along with us this semester!
Have you read any of these books or have other favorites from the end of the nineteenth century? Do you prefer a different genre or century? I’d love to hear!
