We missed you, but I’m glad you got to finish the book! The next won’t be too taxing to fit into paper-grading :) happy Thanksgiving!

Started this on the flight. Barely 50 pgs in, it's already wrecking me. Tremendous voice. Devastating stories. From 2/2018.

Scott told me that Reese Witherspoon optioned the novel for adaptation for TV. Maybe they'll extend it like they did for Handmaid's Tale!

As Julie said, it is a chance to educate, and to be a non-stereotype in their lives. AND it is annoying AF :)

Back to where it all began: Our next will take us back to our first author, Anthony Doerr, but we'll try something a little different. Because it can be the most exhausting time of year, we'll read this wonderful short story for December 17!
