At Falmouth Academy, we emphasize reading and writing and have always had reading lists for our students. We encourage them to turn off their TVs and computer games and instead read or have conversations, as they and we do at FA.
Several years ago, we decided to condense some of our faculty-room conversations and compile this informal reading list for adults. We answered the question we ask prospective students: “What have you read or reread this year that you particularly liked?”
Here, then, are our answers to that question, along with comments by colleagues.
