What better way is there to ease into vacation than with a captivating, thought-provoking book? Literature teacher Sara Borelli loves authors such as Toni Morrison, Isabel Allende and Willa Cather for their common use of poetic language and strong characterization. When asked to pick a favorite novel from each of them, she replies with a chuckle: “Any of their works, really.” Yet she cites “Inferno” by Dante Alighieri and “The Scarlet Letter” by Nathaniel Hawthorne for sharing the insightful characterization that she loves so much.
