CRISPIN, THE CROSS OF LEAD
Who is this boy Crispin?
Recommended in Program(s): Challenge A
Set in feudal England, Crispin tells the story of Asta’s son, a nervous thirteen-year-old nobody, as he becomes Crispin. In this story of courage, mystery, and owning oneself, students explore the meaning of identity and family. Eventually, they will have to choose who they are and what they want to do with the gifts and talents allotted them, just as Crispin does.
