Looking for summer reading suggestions for yourself or the students you serve?
NACAC member Brennan Barnard has released his annual compilation of book recommendations.
The full list — featuring titles suggested by college admission deans and counselors — appears on The Washington Post website. Some selections are related to education, while other titles are simply good reads.
This year’s list includes over 30 books. Both fiction and nonfiction titles are featured.
Frances Jensen’s The Teenage Brain appears alongside Fredrik Backman’s buzzworthy novel, Beartown. Also included are Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime, Anthony Abraham Jack’s The Privileged Poor, and The Stressed Years of Their Lives by Janet Hibbs and Anthony Rostain.
This is the seventh year that Barnard, director of college counseling at The Derryfield School (NH), has had his list published by a major US newspaper.
