What does ‘literary’ mean anyway?

As a girl, I read books like the Bobbsey Twins and Lad: A Dog. In fifth grade we had the Scholastic Book Club and that’s when I first read Jane Austen (probably without much understanding.) My 9th grade English teacher introduced me to the work of Joyce Carol Oates, who wrote about Detroit in her novels “Them” and “Expensive People.” I knew that this was literature, even if I couldn’t exactly define it.
