New Student Book Club!

Mr. Dawkins will be leading Northwest's first ever student book club! This is a quote from his e-mail:
Below you will find our tentative reading list. All of the books are definitely available from and are likely available at most local libraries and bookstores. Let's start with some British literature from the 50s and read Graham Greene's Our Man in Havana. He happens to be a personal favorite author of mine, and this is about the only novel of his that I haven't gotten to. So, on the 30th we'll gather in the new basement conference room in the Lafayette Humanities Building to meet one another for the first time and to discuss that novel.

I look forward to sharing some fun spring reading with all of you. Meantime, let me know of any questions that may arise, and enjoy Mr. Greene!
