Souhegan Reads 2021
Do you have a child at Souhegan High School? This year, the school did not require students to read a specific title over the summer but rather encouraged teens to read for joy. The staff at SHS compiled a recommended reading list with reviews and free access to digital versions. Books are also available at your local library. Click on the link below for the full list.
