“You Can’t Run Away on Harvest Day” and Hurst, “The Omnivore’s Delusion: Against the Agri-intellectuals”

Discussion Posting Prompt:

This week’s discussion posting is a Book Club Discussion (group discussion). Your initial posting will be a response to either Barbara Kingsolver’s “You Can’t Run Away on Harvest Day” or Blake Hurst’s “The Omnivore’s Delusion: Against the Agri-intellectuals” (250 words). In your response, choose either Kingsolver’s or Hurst’s essay, and focus on one of the following response options: 1) what the text says (its ideas) 2) how it says it (the way it’s written) or 3) where it leads your own thinking (your own personal reaction).

* Note: You have a lot of free rein in this discussion posting! Take a few minutes to reread “Deciding How to Respond,” in “Summarizing and Responding,” from The Norton Field Guide to Writing, for some questions to help guide the direction of your response.

Response Posting Prompt:

This week, you will reply to all of your group members with substantial questions and/or comments of 50-100 words each. “Substantial comments and questions” means that you should avoid replies like “I liked your post” or “Good job on your posting.” Instead, focus on one specific point for each group member and either ask a follow-up question or make a relevant comment that will sustain further discussion. Feel free to respond to each other’s responses!
