Danny Lavery welcomes Divya Victor, a poet, author, and associate professor of English at Michigan State University. She recently published CURB, which documents how immigrants and Americans navigate the liminal sites of everyday living.
Lavery and Victor tackle two letters: First, from a writer who is wondering how to tell her friend that she may have married a criminal. The second is wondering if she should just fail most of her students, since online classes have made it easier to plagiarize.
