At the Parents Association's annual Book Fair last week, Browning students, parents, alumni and faculty left with heaps of books to pile on their nightstand for months to come. With five authors and illustrators featured in classrooms, one assembly, a cocktail party panel, one virtual visit from Common Book author Gene Luen Yang, and the newly published photographers from Browning's own photo club, the fair this year offered many opportunities to connect readers to writers and artists. The theme of "Feed Your Need to Read" successfully whetted everyone's appetite!
The Browning community showed its support of literacy and reading by donating new and gently worn children's books to kids at Bellevue Hospital via Reach out and Read, and proceeds from the fair went to many Browning endeavors, including the School's library. Head Librarian Sarah Murphy explains, "The generosity of the Browning community makes it possible for the library to continue to meet the reading needs of our students and faculty. Thank you!"
