MC has just received an opportunity to work closely with an alien. She's a bit wary--but not enough to turn down the money, which she desperately needs--so she agrees. Now she has to break the news to her boyfriend, who is completely opposed to any human-alien interaction. He's trying to talk her out of it, he shows her the propaganda, and they argue.
I don't feel the scene is unnatural or contrived, but stopping the action/dialogue so my MC can read a 200 word pamphlet is probably not a good idea. I'm thinking I'll pinpoint the most vital information and condense it into the first paragraph of the pamphlet, then have her quit reading and resume the argument. Does that sound logical or will I still be in violation of i-dumping?
