June Read of the Month, Congratulations Carlson High School Class of 2011

By the time June comes around my brain is usually fried, so I like to start the summer of with something a little easy on the brain.  I frequently start the summer with some true - crime because I find it interesting and it is usually basically journalism in book form.  However, this June I am going to start with a recommendation from one of my frequent "readers Meg.  She suggested Daytripper, a graphic novel by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba.  For those that do not know, a graphic novel is basically another way to describe a comic book.

Now, I am not much of a comic book guy, but I thought I would give it a try.  The book arrived Tuesday and I am flying through it right now.  The artwork is amazing and the action keeps me flipping the pages.  I probably would have finished the book on Tuesday night, if I would have took the time to write this entry.  I never want to finish a "Read of the Month" before I have a chance to introduce the selection in a post.

On another note, I would like to give a big "shout out" to the Carlson High School Class of 2011.  They will graduate tomorrow at 6:30 p.m.  at Marauder Stadium at O.A. Carlson High School.  It was an honor to work with these young men and women over the past four years.  Graduation is one of my favorite parts of the job.  I love the seeing all the smiling faces as students, staff and family celebrate this very special occasion.  I was upset when I had to miss graduation last year due to the State Track and Field Finals in Zeeland, Michigan.  I look forward to attending many more graduations as I continue working within the Gibraltar School District.

  1. I'm picking away at a response to your awesome comment about Everything Matters, but in the meantime, I was wondering if you'd seen this yet? Since you're a librarian for teens, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
