Be the star of your own READ poster!

We are currently making READ posters in the library.  Please stop by and pose for yours.  Share your love of reading with the rest of our learning community. 

Mrs. Fleming and Mrs. Hiligoss have shared their love of reading.  Will you be next?  Mrs. Fleming posed with the wonderful novel The Kite Runner, a gripping tale about growing up in Afganistan before during and after the Sviet invasion of the 1980s. Sad, powerful, and gritty, this story stays with the reader long after the final page is read. 

Mrs. Hiligoss posed with a Picoult novel called the Tenth Circle. When freshman Trixie Stone accuses her ex-boyfriend Jason Underhill of raping her, everyone is quick to take his side when he claims their intercourse was consensual. Trixie's parents, Daniel, a mild mannered comic book artist from a harsh background, and Laura, a college professor sleeping with one of her students, become involved.  Jason, whose life is supposedly ruined, leaps from a bridge. Although first presumed to be suicide, Trixie is suspected of pushing him, and so she flees to the Yup'ik region of Alaska where her father grew up, and Daniel and Laura follow.  The resolution of this mystery turns out to be both shocking and satisfying.
