Ali: I just finished reading Chasing Secrets, by Gennifer Choldenko, who is coming to speak with our Middle Reader Bookworms Club about it on September 16. I also read Deep Secret, by Diana Wynne Jones, which I thoroughly enjoyed as well!
Andrew: Just finished with Dr. Faustus, by Christopher Marlowe and am starting on Medea, by Euripides. Also reading California’s Wild Edge: The Coast in Prints, Poetry, and History with prints by Tom Killion and text by Gary Snyder.
Nicole: Recently I read Circling the Sun, by Paula McLain, a fictionalization of one of my personal heroes, Beryl Markham (who wrote the remarkable memoir West With the Night). Also just finished Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist, by Sunil Yapa, and The Hunt for Vulcan, by Thomas Levenson.
