William Maxwell, the Fiction Editor of The NewYorker from 1936-1976, stated that, “A New York childhood is a special experience.”
In a journal of 1-2 pages, explore how this statement applies to your life, and explain your position with no more than two specific examples from your own life.
The goal of this assignment is for you to focus on a specific moment in your life that was uniquely possible because of your location in New York.
After we share a few of our experiences, we will move to a close analysis of The Catcher in the Rye. This conversation will be based on the work you completed on the Chapters 1-11 review completed yesterday.
HW: Read ch 12 & complete a dialectical journal
