American Lit

It’s fascinating to talk to my grandchildren about what they are reading in their high school American lit class. They are still learning about Holden Caulfield and Big Brother and Piggy. These are the same characters I read about 50 years ago in high school. Makes me wonder what new material has been added to the curriculum since then. Is there anything new?
