Did you read The Grapes of Wrath in high school?  What about Of Mice and Men or Lord of the Flies?  We look at the books taught in high school English classes, and how that list has changed over the years.  Our guests include Peter Mull, who chairs the English department at Burr and Burton Academy in Manchester.

We got lots of comments from listeners on our Facebook wall, here and here.  Post your comments on Facebook or post them below.

Also, this week McGill University in Montreal hosts a conference that tackles key water issues for the future.  We talk with McGill professor and conference panelist Peter Brown about how Canada is working to be a leader in worldwide water issues. Listen
