Course Title: Manhattan Stories: Eight NYC Tales from Melville to Runyon (Spring Term 2022)
Sarah has wide and rich knowledge of authors and stories and NYC and always seemed eager to lead the class.
The stories reflected the social norms of society during the time period they were written. I found this very interesting.
Course Title: A Literary-Historical Quest into Early Welsh Influences on British History (Winter
I came away with a much fuller understanding of the topic
Sarah is so knowledgeable about the subject and wants to convey all of that knowledge to the class
Course Title: In Search of Arthur: Exploring Early Welsh Literature on the King of the Britons (Fall
I appreciated Sarah's desire to include as much information as possible.
The study leader is very well-versed in Arthurian literature, and the discussion was always animated.
