To we'll begin reading our final book of the year -- a short novel by contemporary English author Mark Haddon from 2003. In conjunction with this short novel, we'll also be reading the Sherlock Holmes story "Silver Blaze," which features some of Arthur Conan Doyle's most effective plotting, hinging on the "curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
We'll be discussing the short story and the novel over the next two classes, after our IRP presentations each day. Check out the Curious incident resources page below
