Around the Towns What’s Your Take?

• Collingswood High School student SAMANTHA FERNANDEZ would suggest Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. She recalled, “We read it in middle school and it’s one of my favorites.” Meanwhile, middle school student RAHSHAWN THOMAS said that he would like to ask his neighbors to read and discuss The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.

Be sure to read Collingswood’s Town Book for 2011, Born to Run (see Cover Story), before meeting author Christopher McDougall at the Book Festival on Sat Oct 1.

If you could select the Town Book for 2012, which book would you choose?

• Collingswood’s GREGG ZOCCHI and PAM GESSERT concurred that Erin Gruwell’s The Freedom Writers’ Diary would be a fine choice for Town Book. “It reminded me that everyone has their own story and that things aren’t always as they seem,” said Pam. Gregg and Pam’s kids, ALEX and JULIA ZOCCHI, would likely choose books from the Magic Tree House Series by Mary Pope Osborne. “They’re always pretending they’re Jack and Annie from those books,” said Pam

• Collingswood Middle School’s XAVIER HENDERSON was found reading his library book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Ugly Truth, in Knight Park. Given the chance, he would select a book from the Jeff Kinney’s Wimpy Kid Series for Town Book next year. His brother SEKAI would choose a book called How Everything Works. Audubon’s GABRIEL EICHMANN would select a book called Big Foot and Other Legends, while BELLA KOKOCHA would suggest Mommy’s High Heal Shoes by Kristie Finnan.

• What’s On found residents MATTHEW MESSER and LYNN ORTIZ enjoying an afternoon in Knight Park. Lynn reported that Matthew loves Where the Wild Things Are by MauriceSe ndak. However, she would select a “daily devotional book called Today in Life.”

• Collingswood’s MOLLY PATTON believes that Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat would be a fine choice for Town Book. Her father, MICHAEL, said, “I’ll second that!”

• Garfield Elementary School kindergartner DANNY SHANE WYNNE would encourage borough residents to read A Big Book of Scary Stories or The Teddy Bear Habit. His mother, MICHELLE, would choose The Postmistress by Sarah Blake. DAN, Sr enjoys reading with his son and said, “I guess I’d have to choose A Big Book of ScaryStori es,too!”

 On October 6, 1998, Matthew Shepard – a student at the University of Wyoming – was beaten, tied to a fence, and left to die in Laramie WY. His torture and murder was classified as a hate crime fueled by homophobia. The incident illustrated the need for hate crime legislation. A month after the murder, Moisés Kaufman and members of Tectonic Theater Project traveled to Laramie and conducted interviews with residents. From these interviews, The Laramie Project was born and later made into a film for HBO. The Collingswood Community Theatre’s production of The Laramie Project will feature video, audio, and music. Evening performances will be held on Thu Oct 13 thru Sat Oct 15 at 7:30pm. There will be a matinee on Sat Oct 15 at 2pm. collingswoodcommunitytheatre.com.
