QAS BOOK READING FORUM August/ 2015
Our summer season is ending. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed some great literature.
What have you read lately? Have you read/ attended any great plays?
Prior to evolving into the QAS Academy, our upper grade students enjoyed discussing the craft of writing with guest playwright Garrett Robinson during Career Day on May 29th. Other literary guests are pre-scheduled for this coming school year.
I have a wide range of interests. The following is a sample of books I read this summer:
“Eddie Bell En Francais” (Mr. Bell has an informative web-site highlighting his interests and talents).
“Monkey” by WuCh’êng-ên.
“The Bluebird” by Maurice Maeterlinck.
I also discovered BookBub which provides selections designed from your self-styled profile. They have given me permission to advertise on our site: http://www.bookbub.com/deals/invite
I haven’t needed their suggestions to date, however I will probably utilize them in the coming months.
I am presently reading “Fire Wind” by Yván Yauri.
As you have noticed through these QASBRF years, I have an “international bend” in my selections. I encourage you to consider a variety of writers. Experiencing and appreciating other world views, times, experiences and places, real or imagined are exciting discoveries. We would have a great deal to discuss! Dialogue between our “reading spaces” has always been available. Interested?
Peace, Diane Ward.
