Lenape Regional High School District Book Fair set for June 9 and June 10 at Marlton Barnes & Noble

The event will serve as a kickoff to the “One Book, One Theme” 2018–19 Common Reading program.

The Lenape Regional High School District will hold a book fair for students, staff, parents and community members on June 9 and June 10 at the Barnes & Noble in Marlton.

The event will serve as a kickoff to the “One Book, One Theme” 2018–19 Common Reading program.

Instead of selecting one book for the entire school community to read, this year district committee members selected five books for participants to choose from. These five books all fall under a common theme of “Windows & Mirrors.”

According to LRHSD Director of Curriculum and Instruction Heather Xenakis, the theme reflects the idea that, “books serve as windows and mirrors for their readers: windows to see into the lives of others and mirrors to reflect similar qualities in specific characters and to reflect on who we are.”

Participants may select from among these five books:

  • “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr
  • “The Running Dream” by Wendelin Van Draanen
  • “Michael Vey, the Prisoner of Cell 25” by Richard Paul Evans
  • “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio
  • “Turtles All the Way Down” by John Green

The event on June 9 and June 10 will also include a student art display, performances from bands from the district’s schools and demonstrations from the Storm Robotics team.

The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. each day at the Marlton Barnes & Noble, 200 W. Route 70.
