Questions for Christopher Johnson
In groups of three: Come up with two questions you’d like to ask Christopher Johnson next week. One may be of a general sort—about background, context, motives, reception, etc. But at least one should be tied to a specific passage in his book. We’ll talk about these questions, but please email me them to me as well.
