From the Mouths of Millennials
This study group will be a weekly discussion of contemporary literature recommended by Millennials specifically for OLLI learners. We will read 5 novels, each illustrating and grappling with the present social, political, economic, and environmental concerns of Millennials concerns which they want to bring to the attention of other generations. Our discussions of the novels will include the significant current events included in the books, the ways in which they navigate social difference, and the reasons why Millennials may have recommended them in the first place. We will read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, The Circle by Dave Eggers, Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, Walden on Wheels by Ken Ilgunas, and Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. This study group is coordinated by Emelia Abbe, a Ph.D. candidate in U of M’s Department of English.
