Rapid Reviews –Thursday, May 7 at 3pm in the Apple Tree.

Reading for pleasure. Aren’t those beautiful words?   Come to Rapid Reviews to get ideas of what to read during the long, golden days of summer.  Students Mary Coventry, Erin Riordan and Will Jenkins, along with faculty member Michael Boylen and staff member Aidan Sammis will talk about eight to ten of their all-time favorite books, reviewing each one in a minute or less.   You’ll hear about 47 books in 47 minutes!  All the books reviewed will be at the event and you can check them out for the summer.  Milk and homemade chocolate chip cookies will be served.
