I am working with a high school book group and we are looking for partners to enter into a discussion around the book A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah. We are an urban high school and the book group is made up of a diverse group of students. A class or group of students from a third world country would be ideal but the book is so powerful, insights from anywhere would be welcome. Our students begin reading or listening to the book next week: October 6th. It will last probably until the then of first semester. As a librarian, I hope to post initial prompting questions and am thinking that some will involve the theme of forgiving oneself and others for childhood events. Can anyone out there gather a group of students together to share the experience of this powerful book?
