For the pilot year of the program, we have selected Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The novel explores the importance of books, literature, and libraries, as well as themes related to censorship, intellectual freedom, and technology.
Watch a student-produced preview of the project and book selection here.
The book is available at the Hedburg Public Library and school libraries in the School District of Janesville, as well as at local bookstores. Copies of the book in Spanish language are available for check-out from the Craig High School front office. More information about the book can be found on the NEA book guide page and on the Teaching Books page.
