I’m teaching Jane Eyre to my lit class girls this month and therefore spent a good bit of last week prepping—a most delightful occupation. Here’s what was on my list of things to do:

• Cathy David lecture (SO GOOD)
• Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys (not really for the class, just because all of the above put me in the mood)
