Telling Our Stories, Sharing Our Lives:
A Journal of First-Year Writing at Brooklyn College


FALL 2015

Brooklyn College students of the class of 2019 began their college experience through the pre-freshman reading of Ruth Ozeki's A Tale for the Time Being during the summer before the start of the Fall 2015 semester. Once classes began, students discussed Ozeki's book, wrote their own stories, and attended a lecture and reading by Ozeki when she visited Brooklyn College in October 2015. We call this collection of student memoirs Telling Our Stories, Sharing Our Lives.
