Lindsey Library Media Center

Summer Reading 2019

Dear English Student and Guardians:

 

The English Department requires all incoming freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors to read at least one book during the summer, and we certainly encourage you to read more than the single title. Please select a book (or more) from the list provided.  The list includes a range of interests and genres. Please feel free to help your student come up with a final selection.

No formal written response is required before school begins; however, beginning-of-the-year activities will center around these books, so you might find it beneficial to use post-it notes, make margin comments, or take screenshots of important passages as you read.  Know that you will be held accountable for reading a book from the list. Please bring any/all notes regarding the book to class with you on the first day of school.

 

It is important for families to read and discuss together, so we encourage parents/guardians to read these books also.  This year we are making all summer reading books available through students' school-issued iPads via the Sora app. Should your child wish to use a paper version of the book, please visit your community libraries who have been informed of our summer reading program for copies. These books are also available for purchase through Amazon.com, or any other online bookstore, as well as at your local, independent bookstore.

 

Additionally, this year's 'One Book One Glenbard' Community Read will be David Grann's Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI. All community members are invited to attend his September 5th presentation.

 

We look forward to meeting you in August. In the meantime, enjoy the rays and a great read!

 

Sincerely,    

   

The Glenbard East English Department
