*The Administration has decided that there will be no required summer reading for AP classes for the year 2020/2021.  As an English Department, we believe that any reading is good reading, so if  you are looking for something to read and keep your brain engaged, we suggest anything that interests you off the list put together and published by Teacher-Librarian, Alana Stern, found here:  http://wrhslibrary.weebly.com/summer-reading.html
