Summer Reading 

Summer Reading Program

 

Welcome to Trinity’s All-School Summer Read

The Social Studies Department and the Library Media Center are pleased to announce that our 2022-23 summer reading selection is Dragon Hoops by Gene Luen Yang.

Award-winning author Gene Luen Yang’s latest graphic memoir Dragon Hoops tells the story of his career as a high school teacher at Bishop O’Dowd High School in Oakland. Yang follows Bishop O’Dowd’s basketball team and its pursuit of the California State Championship. But, this book is not just about basketball.  Instead, it tells the story of the diverse students at Bishop O’Dowd. As School Library Journal raved, “Dragon Hoops will have even sports haters on their feet cheering.” We’re confident all Trinity students will find something to love and ponder in this excellent book.
