3 Questions with Steve Nelson
A Chance to Meet Mr. Nelson at 7 pm on Wednesday, February 8 at the Norwich Bookstore
We added a Friday post so that we could feature Steve Nelson, Head of School at the Calhoun School, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. In addition to serving as a Valley News columnist, Mr. Nelson has been a regular contributor to the Huffington Post and worked as an administrator at Vermont Law School and Landmark College.
Mr. Nelson will visit the Norwich Bookstore in Norwich, Vermont at 7 pm on February 8th to discuss First, Do No Harm. The event is free and open to the public. However, reservations are recommended as space is limited. Call 802-649-1114 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to save your seat.
1. What three books have helped shape you into the author you are today, and why?
The Magic Years by Selma Fraiberg - I read this as an undergraduate and it inspired a lifelong interest in children (including my own), how they develop and how we should love and nurture them.
Amazing Grace by Jonathan Kozol - As with other Kozol books, Amazing Grace is beautifully written and should inspire loving outrage in any human.
- Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences by Howard Gardner - Mr. Gardner's work should have changed how we see other humans and how we educate children. It hasn't, and it's a shame.
