The Book Club hosted a scholastic book fair in the library during April. There were many books and items to choose from. They were able to sell over $300 worth of merchandise.

Sophomore Andrew Kalani-Velles went to the book fair and purchased two items, a Shonen Jump magazine, and ‘Last De- scendants,’ an Assassin’s Creed novel.

”It’s a good opportunity for me to look around and to dis- cover new, different types of stories,” Kalani-Velles said.

Book Club adviser Matthew Johnson said he thought the book fair would have been more popular than it was.

“It’s kind of a smaller turn-out than I thought. I thought that maybe more people would be walking in, at least looking,” Johnson said.

He said he became adviser for the Book Club because of
his love for books. He said Book Club membership fluctuated throughout the year, but they usually maintained an average of eight students.

Junior Jahanavi Priya is the president of the Bake For Friends Club, which currently has about 15 members. They were selling baked goods like muffins and croissants during the book fair to raise money for Shriner’s Hospital.
