How Anne Beatts Taught Me To Rebel

I always tried to be a good girl. I have learning disabilities so some things like doing double division, using scissors, cursive, keeping my desk clean, was simply impossible for me. So I always tried to be a good girl. I was quiet in class, raised my hand, and read more than everyone else in the class. I went to Catholic school so I tried to read the Bible every night and I said the rosary. Until Fall 1982.

My father called me one night in September. “There’s a new show I don’t think you should watch,” he said.
