Young Readers Flock to Bookfair

BookFairbags

   

The fall Bookfair has drawn crowds of students this week, from the smallest picture book connoisseurs to the young adult fiction enthusiasts. For weeks they have been tightening their belts and saving their allowance money in order to bring home a new volume of stories, characters, and ideas.  

Felice Rutstein-Lee has been organizing bookfairs at Conservatory Lab for several years. She loves seeing the students so excited about reading. “Students start asking me about it in September,” she explains. “Students tell me they wait to buy their favorite books here because they know it helps the school.”
