From Trevor Noah, Ocean Vuong, and Jesmyn Ward to Amy Tan, Mike Rose, and Martin Luther King Jr., The Norton Sampler offers writing by contemporary & classic authors on topics students want to read about. New readings and thematic clusters on "Whose Stories Get Heard?," social justice, and overcoming adversity make the 10th edition the most inspiring yet. The new Chapter 1, "Reading like a Writer," gives students strategies and examples for reading actively and critically-including innovative new templates for previewing and annotating a text.
