Three quick things.
1. Sick days! The flu test came back negative, but my doctor started me on Tamiflu anyway. I’m pretty out of it. I even had to cancel yesterday’s class.
2. What we would have talked about in yesterday’s class? Jewish Latin American literature. So when I emailed my students to tell them not to come to class, I asked them to watch this Yiddish Book Center interview with Ilan Stavans, the author of all the readings I’d assigned.
