SRL Book Talk Success
- Juliet Zabel is looking forward to reading Dig because it provides different perspectives of multiple characters.
- Renee Yunker is interested in Unpunished Murder because it is a story that must be told.
- Christy Rush recommends getting Bloom because it is a great addition for libraries in need of graphic novels and LGBT friendly material.
- Leigh Cavanaugh shares that Startalk is a text that students can go to for quick inspiration.
- Brittany Jacobs is intersted in Hey Kiddo because it seems to be a very relatable topic.
- Terry McHugh recommends Blacklisted because the parallels between the Hollywood "Communist" era and today are compelling.
