Crash Course Literature with John Green is back! Starting next week, we've got 9 new literature episodes for you. Here's what we're reading:
Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain
Sonnets - William Shakespeare (Particularly sonnets 18, 116, & 130)
Lord of the Flies - William Golding
Invisible Man - Ralph Ellison
100 Years of Solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Sula - Toni Morrison
I know that's not nine books. Two of them are two episodes long. You should be able to get Huckleberry Finn and the Sonnets for free, as they're in the public domain. Try the Gutenberg Project. Get on the library waiting list for the rest of them!
