Reading Response #1

Dillard is a very clear writer. She writes about place, not only geographically, but insightful to the time of her youth. Her description of Squirrel Hill is funny, descript, and telling of the location.

My childhood was very different from Dillard’s, as we grew up a couple of years apart. I was more of an independent child. I mostly played video games inside. If I did go outside to play, it was never to chase a cruse. I would make up a game to play by myself. My parents didn’t have very much money, so my father never bought a boat. Also, I grew up in a very small town, not a growing city.
