Alumni Council Hosts Virtual Book Discussion with Former HS English Teacher Andrew Glassman and Author Margot Livesey
The Alumni Council hosted an alumni book discussion featuring The Boy In the Field by Margot Livesey on Monday, April 4.
Former High School English Teacher Andrew Glassman led the discussion, including a Q&A with Margot.
In the acknowledgments accompanying the novel, Margot had written: "My thanks to the pupil at The Dalton School who, years ago, asked why the animals in my stories don't talk. Very belatedly, this is an attempt at an answer."
The Boy in the Field was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year (2019) and an O Magazine Book of the Year. You can watch Monday’s discussion here.
