090820-Common Reader Recommendations

The 2021 Common Reader is The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead, a particularly important text given the Black Lives Matter demonstrations that have unfolded over the past several months. In spite of the fact schools are just opening, the NEHS Advisory Council has begun to discuss possible Common Reader choices for next year. We would love to have suggestions from Advisors or chapter members; perhaps an early topic of discussion for a chapter meeting might be to share titles from summer reading that members feel would be good candidates for the Common Reader. Send suggestions to or directly to Dave Wendelin, NEHS Director.
