Five Alternate Mondays

Sept 14  |  Oct 12, 26  | Nov 9, 23

Transgressions are “ sins of disobedience” or actions outside of cultural norms. Some transgressions , like Felix culpa, lead to positive transformation; some lead to disintegration.

For this class, we will read: Beloved by Toni Morrison, Stealing Heaven by Marion Meade, Perfume by Patrick Suskind, The Ninth Hour by Alice McDermott and The Secret History by Donna Tartt.
