50th Anniversary of an American Classic

2010 marks the 50th Anniversary of Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird.  Events throughout the country started in late May and ran throughout the summer.  Information on the anniversary can be found here! 

Mockingbird is one of my favorite novels of all time.  I tend to pick it up every few years and re-read the book.  I only do this with about three to four books (The Great Gatsby, Of Mice and Men to name a few).  I seem to find new "bits" that I missed each time I read those books.  Do you have any books that you read and re-read?  I am sure some people think it is weird.

Again, happy to report that Monday I am full time back at Oscar A. Carlson High School.  The News Herald wrote a fine story about the district finding money to bring back a number of positions.  This includes the media specialist at Shumate Middle School.  Great news for the students of the Gibraltar School District.
