On November 29, 2018, I will host the “Principal’s Book Chat” for students. Students that read the book will be invited to join me for lunch and discuss the novel.
This semester’s novel will be, “Like A River: A Civil War Novel” by Kathy Cannon Wiechman. We have copies of the book for students to sign out, but copies are also available for purchase from major book sellers. Students can sign out a copy of the book, and/or sign up for the Book Chat in the Mannion Library.
As a former history teacher, I love the historical accuracy of the book. I also appreciate the message of sacrifice for one’s beliefs and the reminder that the human spirit in a powerful force. I think November, just a few weeks after Veterans Day, is an appropriate time to recognize the sacrifice of not only our current veterans, but veterans of times that have long past by.
I hope your student will read the book, “Like A River: A Civil War Novel” and consider joining me for the Principal’s Book Chat on November 29, 2018.
Todd C. Petersen. Principal
