Suggestions for reviewing readings by CLA (and other) authors: 1) Please let me know the name of the author, and the date of the reading. 2) Bring a notebook and pen to the reading, and simply jot down as much as you can observe about the reading. You may not get everything, but what I want are your impressions of the reading: what was the author like? Did they seem comfortable with presenting their work? What did they read? If you can’t catch a title, then jot down a bit of what you think the story, essay, or poems were about. Was the author’s presentation clear and understandable? Some writers are much better than others at this. 3) Also, give me your impressions of the audience. Did they seem attentive? Bored?

Were they allowed to ask questions, for example, and if so, do you think the questions were reasonable, and did the author answer them adequately. 4) If the author was interviewed by a faculty member (or other interviewer), jot down a few of the questions if you can, or at least get the general tone of what the author was asked. Was the interviewer adequate, asking interesting questions that drew the writer out and made them seem to want to talk? What was your impression of the author’s answers? 5) Finally, did you enjoy the reading? Why or why not?...
