Tell the Wolves I'm Home
One of the best books I read this year. Perfectly captures the insecurities of a 14-year-old girl who has lost her uncle--the one person who "gets" her--to AIDS in the 1980s. With the author's strong characterizations, the book reminds me of the work of Gail Godwin, in particular The Finishing School. LauraADPPL/WeAreSpartacus.
Tell the Wolves I'm Home offers a true-to-life narrative voice in June Elbus, a 14 year old girl who is grieving for her best friend in the world, a middle-aged uncle who just died of AIDS. Although marketed as an adult title, this book could easily be considered for high school reading. WeAreSpartacus/lascorpia

Carol Rifka Brunt Author Talk at Darien Public Library
Carol Rifka Brunt speaks at the Darien Public Library. At first, the video is focused on the podium, but the author chooses not to stand at the podium, and they move the video a few seconds in. Be patient. Worth it.
