For Monday's class, you were to read in Rick Bragg's Somebody Told Me "The Story of Dirty Red" in order to do a little writing during class. For Tuesday, you were to read all the "Secrets" section from that book.
We didn't get to Bragg in today's class, so I'm modifying this assignment a bit. The new assignment for Tuesday is
a) read "The Story of Dirty Red," and make a comment on this post concerning what the tone is and whether or not Bragg uses the right tone to deal with the subject matter in the story;
b) Read "Town Secret Is Uncovered in Birth Quest," and make a separate comment to this post, identifying the tone of the piece in one word and picking specific details that you think contribute to that tone.
For each of these posts, refer to specific lines and page numbers.
