Summer Reading Selections

Our summer reading selections are chosen carefully, and often reflect current social issues, common campus themes, and matters of historical significance. Many of the books—and many of the authors—are award-winning and widely renowned. Recent selections have included: Educated by Tara Westover; Born a Crime by Trevor Noah; All American Boys, by Jason Reynolds and Brandon Kiely; Mudbound, by Hillary Jordan; and The Legacy: An Elder’s Vision for Our Sustainable Future by Dr. David Suzuki.

Traditionally, Taft students and faculty read one book over the summer break, and then come together in the fall to discuss the book.

During the summer of 2021, all students should read The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett.
