Students, use the Comments section of this post to brainstorm two good topics for each of the genres, and then we will make our groups or select our authors to do individually.
Pick one author you know and one author you are not that familiar with in each category, for a total of six brainstorms in your final list. Do some research to help yourself find out which ones are most interesting to you. Then in the Comments section, list the six writers you would most be interested in doing for this assignment, in order of priority. In other words, most desirable topic first, on down to number six, and in this list are two from each genre.
