Dear America

Studying a book or film can be a short-cut to consigning it to boredom. But our Texts in the City series – a gift to students, their teachers and lifelong learners – brings the VCE English and Literature lists to life.

Each week, our hosts – authors Lili Wilkinson and Tony Birch – will interview experts intimately familiar with the texts, unearthing those hidden gems that could help your essay shine.

This time around, we look at Bernard Edelman’s Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam.

Presented in association with The Victorian Association for the Teaching of English.
