Title Raves: Assigned Reading with Vailey Oehlke, Martha Gies, Robert Brock, Craig Johnson and Jayne Freshour
Remember junior high and high school required reading? Did you sleep through The Scarlet Letter? Read the CliffsNotes for The Canterbury Tales? Adults are rediscovering - and enjoying - the classics that bewildered them as students. Listen to Library Director Vailey Oehlke; Martha Gies, writer, teacher and author of Up All Night; Robert Brock, Professor Emeritus, University of Montana, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and Craig Johnson, who taught Language Arts and Foreign Languages at the Metropolitan Learning Center, as they talk about the highlights - and lowlights - of those classic novels.
