What’s On Your Book Shelf?

Written by Idea File Staff

Each issue of Idea File will feature a list of books yearbook advisers and staffs are reading and using now. The list will vary and will include book subjects ranging from instruction to popular non-fiction. For this issue, advisers were asked to name a book or two that they would not want to do without in their classroom. The list ranges from guides with practical applications to novels that demonstrate writing style. Maybe you will find a new favorite book from this list.

Your Personal Story
We need your personal story

Do you have a favorite yearbook in your life? Do you know someone who does? Then we want to hear that story.

We are starting a feature on our website called, “What My Yearbook Means to Me.” These are to be stories about a particular yearbook. For example, do you have a yearbook that has a special photo that exists nowhere else? Have you found a parent’s yearbook and learned things about them you never knew? Or did your senior yearbook have a prophecy about you that came true – for example, you were voted most likely to succeed and you did?

These can be stories about compiling a yearbook, but are not limited to that experience.

If you would consider sharing your fond memories with us and others, please contact Elizabeth Braden at elizabeth.braden@walsworth.com or 800-369-2965, ext. 5770. We look forward to hearing from you.
