What Zadie Smith’s Students Are Reading

We have a display shelf in the store that showcases required textbooks for some of Columbia University’s courses this semester. We often get inquiries from students wanting to know “who’ s requiring what?” We thought it would be fun to share some of them with you. This semester author Zadie Smith is teaching a Fiction Seminar called “Sense and Sensibility”. There are 15 books listed for the course. Here are ten of them, visually displayed.
