Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently scheduled to debut March 30th. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

The Burgess Boys
This week's Time magazine has an article on The Burgess Boys, the new novel by Elizabeth Strout (Olive Kitteridge). The article's tagline is "What happens when a hate crime becomes a family affair?" It is set in Shirley Falls, Maine (same setting as Amy and Isabelle), after a bunch of refugees move in from Somalia. Her book that we read was entertaining, and led to lots of discussion, so probably this one would be a good selection too.
