About the list of 40 things to hear, see, read and visit

By Lindsay Ruebens

Sure, everyone gets their summer reading assignment at the end of the school year. And sure, they’re usually “important.”

But they’re also just a snippet.

What if Charlotte teens could broaden their horizons and orient themselves to this place and time, gaining a little historical context and having a little fun at the same time?

We’ve asked some experts to offer a total of 40 suggestions for what a local high school student can see, read, hear and do this summer to better understand Charlotte in 2013. NOTE: These suggestions are aimed at high schoolers but aren’t scrubbed clean of any controversy. So parents, be aware.

See how many you’ve already done – and let us know what you think we’ve missed.
