Summer Reading

This year for the first time, all Upper School students and faculty will read a common book, Claudia Rankine's Citizen: An American Lyric. Citizen was published in 2014 in the wake of the murders of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Though considered a book of poetry, Rankine combines essays, images, and prose poems to construct a personal and public history of race and racism in America. We hope that when we return to school in the fall, Citizen can guide some of our conversations and lead us all to a deeper understanding of the marginalized voices in our country.
