Kennedy School English Wing

22 king size guestrooms are available

Maybe there could be an alternative reading list, after all the typical books required by the school have been read and salted away. Maybe it's a list compiled by the janitor who has become something of a legend over the years by spreading around this particular list of books with strange words of encouragement like, "Do not read any of these books as they might be too much for you at this time," or "If you're not of sound mind..." and things of that sort. He then might go into a strange dance and give you a wink while he sweeps down the hallways. Maybe there is a remote and separate wing of the school where things aren't quite as they should be. It could be the English wing and maybe it's where the janitor holds impromptu readings and discussions and there is where, just maybe, great things can begin....
