Reading Update May 2017

Today we began a new book, The Rock and The River by Kekla Magoon. Set in Chicago in the 1960's, this book follows a family through  the struggle of the Civil Rights Movement. Each member of the family assumes a particular role and opinion which represents a variety of constituents in the struggle for freedom of all Americans. 
In this book, the rock and the river represent characters in the book. We began by sharing opinions on the differences and similarities of an actual and metaphorical rock and river.
