When writing an autobiography, would you use first person or third person? Why?
When writing an autobiography, I would use the first person style of writing. First person uses "I" and "me" rather than "Sarah" and "her." Since this is a book about my own life, first person makes the most sense.
Subject: Library and Information Science
Walking into a library, how can you tell the difference between a fiction book and a non-fiction book?
In a library, the fiction books are usually grouped together and the non-fiction books are grouped together. The fiction books have a call number that includes the beginning of an author's name (BLU for Judy Blume). These are shelved in alphabetical order by last name. The non-fiction books have a numerical call number (e.g. 491.8). These are shelved according to the Dewey Decimal system and books within a certain subject are all housed within the same call number.
In the book Conversations with a Black Boy by Emmanuel Acho, who is the intended audience? What are your thoughts on this?
The intended audience for Conversations with a Black Boy is a middle school student. To be more specific, a white middle school student. This book is written by a black man to white people to increase awareness on race, racism, and white privilege. I think this is an interesting way to write, but also an important message for anyone this day and age.
