I've decided to create a reading blog to show my students at a Toronto boys' school-- who are frequently reluctant readers-- the delight in reading.

NIGHT by Elie Wiesel
This brave and haunting memoir written by the Nobel Prize winner demands to be read over and over again. Wiesel is just a boy when he and his family are taken to Auschwitz and then he is moved to Buchenwald with his father. What astonishes me each time I read this book is how he manages to remain a man of faith in face of the atrocities he witnessed and experienced.
