The Wednesday Wars

Last year we read The Wednesday Wars by Newberry Honor writer, Gary Schmidt.  He is a local writer, and we were learning about The Vietnam War and also Shakespeare (just one of those bunny trails we often follow when one of the kids becomes interested in something).  This novel intertwines both subjects, so how could we not read it?!

A local college , the same one the author teaches at, was doing a stage production of The Wednesday Wars.

It was fabulous!

I think we might be revisiting Shakespeare this coming week…
