"Otsuka’s Campus Visit”
by Isela Martinez
Isela Martinez wrote "Otsuka's Campus Visit " in ENGL20: College Composition II. Her instructor, Carrie LaPorte, asked students to attend Julie Otsuka's lecture for the 2010 One Book, When the Emperor Was Divine, and submit a campus event report based on their attendance of Otsuka’s lecture. Isela's instructor and the reviewer for Writing the University felt that Isela's report describes, summarizes, and addresses the points of Otsuka’s lecture in an expressive and articulate way, integrates meaningful analysis of the book, and expresses her own experience of attending the event, while maintaining a clear and engaging personal voice.
