February Read-a-Long of Sunrise Over Fallujah by Walter Dean Myers

As part of the War Through The Generations 2014 Reading Challenge with a Twist, we’ll be hosting a read-a-long for the Gulf Wars (Gulf War/Operation Desert Storm and Iraq War/Operation Iraqi Freedom).

In February, we’ll be reading Sunrise Over Fallujah by Walter Dean Myers, which is about Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Discussion questions will be posted on Friday for the designated chapters.  As there are no chapter numbers, we’ll have to use approximate page numbers.

Here’s the reading schedule and discussion dates:

  • Friday, Feb. 7:  Pgs. 1-86 (ends with “I don’t mind, though.”
  • Friday, Feb. 14: Pgs. 87-152 (begins with “April 12, 2003”; ends with “nothing over here.”)
  • Friday, Feb. 21: Pgs. 153-214 (begins with “Sergeant Harris and Jonesy got” and ends with “toothpaste to the Iraqis.”)
  • Friday, Feb.  28:  Pgs. 215-end (begins with “A tribal leader”)

We hope you’ll be joining us next month for our Gulf Wars read-a-long.
