Daily Announcements - August 22, 2019


The AP Literature class would like to approve The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver for use this academic year. It will be a wonderful addition to the literature already taught in the class. The following is a summary of the novel, taken from Amazon.com:  The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it—from garden seeds to Scripture—is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.  The book will be on display in the front office for anyone who wishes to check it out for the following six days.
