Read at Fisherman's Wharf

25 Oct

Read enjoyed a clear sunny day beside the San Francisco Bay today, exploring Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz Island. His visit to Alcatraz transported him with its educational and engaging audio tour and startled him with the unexpected beauty he found in such a rugged, inhospitable place.

How many of you read the bestselling novel Al Capone Does My Shirts (2004) in middle school? It’s about Moose Flanagan and his family moving to Alacatraz in 1935 when his father gets a job at the prison.

    It is a memorable place! Yes, this is a blog for a high school library and one of my goals as their library media specialist is to encourage reading.

    Nice! Seeing Fisherman’s Wharf brought back some memories of touring the States with my band and falling in love with San Francisco.
    If I have this right, this is a blog to encourage kids to read….now that’s got to be a good thing.
