Observations New NTC Coordinator Charlotte Wolfe

It is hard to believe that I’ve been at the Newberry Library for two months already. The time has flown by with preparing for, and hosting over 10 NTC seminars. Working with NTC has been a great experience; I just wish I had the time to sit in on all of the seminars, Even when I can only catch the first ten minutes of a seminar, I always learn something interesting. In Tim Libretti’s seminar on the Richard Wright/Zora Neal Hurston debate, the discussion of the historical forces that shape what has qualified as literature at different points in time was particularly illuminating. One of the best things about the seminars is meeting all of the dedicated teachers that come to the Newberry ready to learn. To all of the NTC participants: What is the best NTC seminar you’ve ever attended, and what topics would you really like to see an NTC seminar about? We want to hear from you!
