It is not too early to recommend texts for next year’s Common Reader. What books did you or your students read over the summer that made you think, moved you, filled you with wonder? While we will be sending a more formal survey at a later date to all Advisors asking for suggestions, we would love to begin the gathering of titles now.
Recommendations may be either fiction or non-fiction; we tend to stay away from the classics and works commonly found in the high school literature canon, wishing to expand the reading horizons of our members. Please send suggestions to dwendelin@niu.
