Telling Our Stories/Sharing Our Lives
The link below will take you to the website for "Telling Our Stories/Sharing Our Lives." The site presents essays written by first-year Brooklyn College students who have participated in the First-Year Common Reading program and the English Department's Composition 1 course. Since 2004, essays from each year's first-year class have been collected for an annual anthology, and these essays are here preserved online.
