Suggested Reading From Mrs. Mayer

Mrs. Mayer happened to be in the library yesterday (probably taking advantage of the air conditioning), so I asked her for a book suggestion for the VSS students.  She gave me a couple to use, so here is her first one:

Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy

Did you know that even after the Civil War blacks were not treated as equals to the whites? Did you know that it even happened in Maine years after the war? Read "Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy" by Gary Schmidt to find out about the tragic events that really happened right here in Maine! You may be surprised by the events, but you won't be surprised that this book won several awards! Find "Lizzie Bright..." on the FIC SCH self today!

...Dr. Tuell, I'm checking with you next, so get a book ready! :)
