Books on Film

“The book is a film that takes place in the mind of the reader.” ~Paulo Coelho


For this year’s reading, students have a list of books from which they will choose one. During

the first full week of school, students and teachers will discuss the book they have read, watch the film adaptation of the book, and complete a group project in which they gather, build, and model the material they have read and discussed.


Incoming freshmen will sign up for summer reading titles when they attend New Villain Night on April 25. The signups are created so that they are fair and equal; however, they are “first come, first served” and there are a limited number of slots available for each book. If you do not sign up for a book by May 11, one will be chosen for you and you will be notified by mail or via your Bishop email address. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS and NO CHANGES in book choices. All choices or assignments are FINAL. Please choose carefully!
