This six-week course is based on reading two chapters each week of the memoir, Sigh, Gone: A Misfit's Memoir of Great Books, Punk Rock, and the Fight to Fit In by Phuc Tran. This memoir details a Vietnamese immigrant’s journey to “fit in” to a small town in Pennsylvania and with his own family, as well as how we form relationships with fiction and how those relationships can help us form our identities. Read reviews of the book here. Opportunities for PDUs OR academic credit in this "choose your own book study adventure": meet virtually for informal discussion and/or reflect more deeply and develop plans for implementing new ideas and strategies for additional PDUs. OEA will provide copies of the print book to participants. Participants receiving a book from OEA must commit to participating in at least 50% of the discussions and/or assignments.
