If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that we collect lists of top memoirs from people who write or study memoir. Now that summer is breathing down our necks, we are beginning to see summer reading lists popping up like dandelions.
And here is a special list–one from a reader, Carol Brown, who has made her own annotated list for students called “30 Moving Memoirs Every Student Should Read.” You can find it here.
I especially encourage you to find this latter link if you are a teacher at any level who wants students to enjoy reading life stories well told as much as you do.
It’s wonderful to engage with readers and to have a gift like this list show up in my email. Thank you, Carol. And now, readers, what comments do you have on any of these books? Which ones do you want to add? Have you ever taken a memoir to the beach?
