For teens and adults: An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green; Becoming by Michelle Obama; Swing by Kwame Alexander; Dry by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman; My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows.
 
In addition to book recommendations, our librarians are running holiday reading promotions for students in every division.

In the Upper School, Kristen Armstrong is holding a Check-out Challenge for Upper School students and all faculty. Everyone who checks out a book between now and winter break will be entered into a drawing for gift cards to Amazon and the GSB Cafe. Stop by the libraries to check one out!
