This week in class, we’re reading “The Scarlet Ribbon” by Emily Hoffman.
“The Scarlet Ribbon” explores how difficult it is to keep people away from what brings them joy.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Beauty & Happiness, Fate & Free Will, and Love as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
“Can we control our fate?”, “How are we changed by love?”, and “How can we achieve happiness?”

- What did you learn about? About Fate & Free Will? About Love?
