Good reads for Grade 7 students: Biography & autobiography

Recommendations from the UWCSEA Library about reading in different genres. The recommended titles are stocked by the Library. If an item is on loan when you're looking for it, the book can be reserved for you.

Biography, autobiography and memoir

Biography is a genre where the text is written about a person by another person. An autobiography, as the term suggests, is written by a person about her or himself. In the Library, these books may be located in a subject section, where the person is famous for one thing, or perhaps an invention or the job that s/he did. Other examples of this genre are memoirs and diaries. 

As well as these suggestions and recommendations, you can also look at the library catalogue here, where you can do a subject search, using the words for this genre.
