Owls Read 2021: Memphis
Owls Read is an annual school-wide reading program in which everyone in the MUS community reads a work selected by the headmaster and a faculty committee.
The annual selection encourages discussion among students, faculty, and staff for the following school year. The selection is included in the Summer Reading
list for all grades.
This year we explore our city’s iconic musicians and their influence on world music, including the blues, jazz, gospel, and rock ‘n’ roll.
