What Now?: Words of Wisdom for Life After Graduation by Jennifer Leigh Selig
What now? That's the question every graduating senior asks. Each year, hundreds of thousands of students walk down the aisles of high schools and colleges in every city and town, listen to a few speeches, toss their caps into the air, and wonder, "What's next?"
No one can really tell you the answer. But you can prepare.
What Now? overflows with wise and funny words that will inspire your choices and plans. Chosen from Jennifer Jason Selig, a popular English teacher in a California high school, these essays, poems, jokes and smart sayings talk about all the issues of past, present and future that you face.
They begin by addressing the importance of moving on, of learning to let go of the past while still treasuring it. They suggest we should treasure most the people who made the past-and the future-possible: teachers, family and friends.
