What book(s) have you read recently that would make a great basis for stimulating conversation?

Awww..well, I forced my students to read Alas, Babylon. I can't say that was a completely positive experience. It was very detailed. Yet, I am teaching To Kill A Mockingbird, which I taught last year. Books take on a new life when you teach and discuss them.

What's your favorite nonfiction book ever?

I like Oliver Sacks's work. I appreciate Capote's style, because In Cold Blood is written as if it were photographs. It is sad though. I like the biography I read on Madame Curie.

What's a novel that you read for a high school or college requirement that really stayed with you?

I think And the Earth Did Not Part, which is written in English and Spanish is book that meshes Tim Burton, Latino culture, and poetry into a series of short stories. I like Invisible Man and Sent for You Yesterday.


Most stories have conflicts, because that is what makes the plot diagram move. Still, I would like to read a happy tale. On a random note, I think flash fiction can be pretty cool.


Hi! I moved to Jax in August. I would really like to meet new people and read books. I am originally from Pittsburgh (which is a cool place). I hope to explore Jacksonville and see all it has to offer:)
