Back-to-School Reading Recs

It’s September and the school buses are again making the rounds. In honor of back-to-school, us Pub Crawlers have been chatting about some of our favorite required reading from high school.

It doesn’t matter how many books you write, you always learn something new by the end of the ordeal (and trust us: writing is an ordeal. An amazing, fulfilling one, but an ordeal nonetheless). We thought we’d compile a few things WE learned along with some lessons from the […]
