Got about four hours of submissions reading done last week and also read Edgar Allan Poe's Cask of Amontillado alongside the 9th graders I work with.
• What do you think you’ll read next?


It's the end of the semester for me, so my next read will be a pleasure read (just not sure what yet) in addition to poetry and prose submissions

As for audiobooks, next up is the Lorraine Hansberry Audio Collection

I'll also be reading Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque of the Red Death, Henry David Thoreau's Civil Disobedience, and Macbeth alongside the 10th, 11th, and 12th graders I work with respectively.
