Summer Reading 2020
In partnership with the English Department, and your town libraries, we recommend that incoming 7th and 8th-grade students read one text (or more) from the suggested titles given here. These books provide a baseline/context for the expected coursework for the upcoming year. If that is not possible, we simply encourage all students to read this summer; to explore different genres, graphic novels, or anything that will keep our students reading and growing.
In need of additional suggestions or help accessing e-books, please email me at email@example.com or contact the Youth Librarians at your town library this summer.
Where can I find a book or audiobook?
