Yesterday we celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Things They Carried. Tim O'Brien spent an hour with us in a live webcast. He was interviewed by Nathaniel Flick and the student audience. He read from his book and discussed the atrocities of war. 120 of Ms. Devore's senior AP English students joined us. It was a good day. Thanks to Mr. O'Brien, Mr. Flick, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for sponsoring this event for us.
