Catherine, Called Birdy

We are diving into the Middle Ages as we begin reading the novel Catherine called Birdy by Karen Cushman. I think it is quite an easy and fast read on the surface….however there are a lot of ideas and themes in the book that are extremely interesting to study.

We will be reading the beginning, September diary entries, in class. So don’t read ahead. We’ll begin by reading the Author’s note at the back for some very interesting information about life in the Middle Ages.
