Join Kellie and me as we begin to promote this list of fiction and nonfiction titles and the Abe Award program, which is designed to encourage high school students to read for pleasure and to become lifelong readers.
Check out the ACHS catalog, or visit our digital media library Axis 360 to get a head start on your reading. Students who read four or more titles from the list between now and next March get to vote for their favorite book. Students who read all twenty join the ILC Reader Hall of Fame at their respective school.
As we start to hype up the 2019 list, we also retire the 2018 list. The 2018 Abraham Lincoln Book Award went to Six of Crows, the first book in a series by Leigh Bardugo.
Here’s how the 2018 contest shaped up among Antioch students:
Exit, Pursued by a Bear - 1 vote
Highly Illogical Behavior - 1 vote
Nimona - 1 vote
Serpent King - 1 vote
Six of Crows - 1 vote
The Wrath & the Dawn - 1 vote
Let us know if you'd like a copy of the Abe 2019 poster or a colored copy of a flyer for your classroom!
The ILC blog keeps Antioch students and staff up to date with news and events related to reading, research, technology, and more.
