Masterpieces summer reading letter, 2013-2014

"I've been racially profiled a time or two, as a black man.  I was walking to the middle school and the cops stopped me to check for stolen laptops.  Instead they found a copy of The Republic and two notebooks full of poetry.  That's pretty much the story of my life."   -Xavier P.  

 

 

Happy Last Day of Summer School:)

Summer reading!  To quote a student who wishes to remain anonymous, "A Thousand Splendid Suns is the first book I've ever gotten into!  Are there other books like this?"  

Of course there are!  

Here are my suggestions for high-interest July reading:

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Looking for Alaska

and here are NPR's:

"He was alone.  He was unheeded, happy, and near to the wild heart of life.  He was alone and young and wilful and wildhearted, alone amid a waste of wild air and brackish waters and the seaharvest of shells and tangle and veiled grey sunlight" (Joyce, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man)
