[Channel-talklitconversations] Writers on Reading

Greetings--Our Conversations in Literature group is nearing the end of the
workshop. I have been thinking about the readers' profiles and ways to
encourage students to think more about themselves as readers. In the past I
have used some passages from writers on the reading they did when they were
young (Annie Dillard, Robert MacNeil, Eudora Welty). I'm wondering if
anyone has found similar passages in autobiographies or essays.
In thinking about the stances I find myself coming back to how students
re-enter a text which they have found challenging. Offering students some
examples of "professionals" who have struggled with reading seems to be a
way of encouraging students to continue. It seems more important to find
alternative paths rather than explaining away difficulties.
