Summer Reading & Assignments

All-School Read

During the Summer of 2017, faculty and students will select one book to read as part of the "Lawrence Academy Community Read."

This project is an opportunity for the entire community to explore topics and themes of gender and racial identity through the novels Revolutionary by Alex Myers, set in during the Revolutionary War, or All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely, which is set in the present day.

In September, students and faculty will engage in small group discussions focused on identity, inclusion and community. We also invite parents to choose a book and join us for book discussions during a fall Parents' Association meeting.

Revolutionary by Alex Myers
ISBN: 978-1-4814-6333-1

All American Boys by Jason Reynolds & Brendan Kiley
