• Teacher: The One Who Made the Difference

Author Mark Edmundson discusses his book and experiences

Thursday, Oc. 6, 2011
C.Walsh Theatre, 55 Temple St

Mark Edmundson, author of the Freshman Summer Reading book Teacher, will discuss his memories and reflections growing up as a teen in Medford, MA, and attending Medford High where he meets a certain teacher during senior year. This teacher awakened the author's mind; more accurately, this teacher created the conditions for the author to truly realize what it meant to be a student and the wonderful possibilities an education afforded him as he decides to attend college. The themes of independence, growing up, and transitioning from high school to college have much to say to students today as they did to the author some time ago.
