I don’t know if anyone teaches her anymore, but in my high school in the 1970s, there was interest in Carson McCullers. In fact, if memory serves, some of our teachers at City School, which is now called Malcolm Shabazz City High School, used the stage adaptation of The Member of the Wedding for one of our school plays. I saw the film adaptation of The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter just after high school, and later read the novel, both of which I found quite moving.
All of this is a long way around to offering this Cultural Literacy worksheet on Carson McCullers, whom I hope has not been forgotten.
