November/December Staff Reading List

The CSW faculty is comprised of men and women who share a deep passion for continued education through intellectual and leisure reading. We would like to continue sharing with you some of the titles our faculty are reading or have recently finished. This is the third installment of this series.

Catherine Calderwood
I am reading “The Land of Stories” series and working my way through “Tela Charlottae” which is the Latin translation of Charlotte’s Web. I’m also planning to start “The Story of Rolf and the Viking Bow.”
Also, I’m really enjoying my newest book. It’s called “Why Isn’t a Pretty Girl Like You Married and other useful comments” by Nancy Wilson.

Wade Ortego
Coming Apart by Charles Murray

Josh Dyson
Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry

Jen Bookhout
Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman (for class)
This has been a fun book to read with the 10th grade Rhetoric/Composition class. It is challenging all of us to think about the way we collect, perceive and understand messages through things such as television, Facebook, Instagram and other media.
The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp
When I read Voskamp’s first book, One Thousand Gifts, I said that she writes the language of the deepest crevices of my heart. This still holds true with her second book. She is refreshingly honest and vulnerable with her struggles, both past and present. She is a gifted poet, and challenges my heart in ways I still don’t fully understand. I highly recommend you read her work.
