Alpha Readers kicked off another year of literary savvy and fine foodstuffs on September 27th 2010. Our summer reading was the novel The Rector of Justin, a work of genius written by Louis Auchincloss about the life and times of Dr. Prescott. Dr. Prescott is the rector and founder of Justin Martyr, a New England prep school for boys. Brian Aspinwall, a teacher at the prestigious school, becomes a collector of scraps of information on Dr. Prescott’s life and pieces them together in his journal.
