Let’s share our quotes, questions, and topics for Jiayang Fan’s “Motherland”

Also: There’s still time to join the discussion next Sunday

Happy Sunday, Article Clubbers! This month, we’re reading, annotating, and discussing “Motherland,” by Jiayang Fan of The New Yorker. We’re going to have a big turn-out at our discussion next Sunday, so thank you for joining. (There’s still time to sign up if you’re interested.)

All right, let’s recap: We have the article to read and annotate. We have the interview with Ms. Fan. This week, let’s share quotations, questions, and topics we might want to talk about at the discussion.

It’s not mandatory, of course, but please feel free to add your contribution in the comments!
