Girl, Woman, Other (hannah)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo “follows the lives of twelve very different people in Britain, predominantly female and Black. Aged 19 to 93, they span a variety of cultural backgrounds, sexualities, classes, and occupations as they tell the stories of themselves, their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years” (from Evaristo’s website). It is written in a hybrid poetry-prose style that illuminates themes of modern womanhood and intergenerational histories. 

In 2019, the year it was published, this book crushed many bestselling lists and, more importantly, was on the favorite-books-of-the-year lists of Barack Obama and Roxane Gay. It also won the Booker Prize. 

In this class, we will read, analyze, discuss, and write about this stunning book. It will be really fun. Take this class if you wanna learn how to read with purpose and write with power and engage with an excellent narrative.
