Diane Simmons' The Courtship of Eva Eldridge is a book of non-fiction about the changed gender roles during WWII, and one woman's refusal to go back to the old norms after the war. The book is based on primary documents (800 letters found in an attic), archival and site research, and internet research. Simmons will read brief passages from the book, then discuss the research that supported the passage, allowing the students to learn about various methods of research and how to blend it into prose.
