Last week before the great snowstorm of 2010 set in, I heard a breaking story that author J.D. Salinger has passed away.
Hearing the news made me think about my experiences reading "Catcher in the Rye" over the years. Growing up a military kid, it seems I always missed the point in your high school career when "Catcher" was required reading. So, I've not read it as part of an academic setting, but I did seek it out and read it myself during a summer break.
So the opportunity to read the book with others has always eluded me. Until now...
To honor the memory of Salinger, A Reader's Respite is having a group read of the book. You can find out more details and how to sign up HERE.
