Today's challenge action is to read something written by someone from a different background/culture/race/religion than you. If you are looking for something to read, check out the cart of books Ms. Disanto set aside for this challenge in the upper library. We also have an entire shelf in the library dedicated to World Literature. If you don't have time to head to the library today, check out some of the reading lists included below to help you find a text that interests you.
"Books help weave humanity together as a single family, holding a past in common, a history and heritage, to craft destiny that is shared, where all voices are heard in the great chorus of human aspiration."
