  7. I'm leading a group of homeschooled middle schoolers in a monthly book discussion. In October, we read and studied The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. It was great!

  9. I had not expected James Baldwin's "Go Tell It On the Mountain" to be such a beautifully rich and colorful work of literature. The scenes in the charismatic church jump of the page and the complexity of the characters is believable. I was shocked to see that the attempts to ban it from schools came over 30 years after it was published.
