Student Book Club

St. Andrew's has a book club!
It all started rather organically when two students who discovered they share the love of reading (Spencer McKenzie '20 and Madeline Birknes '21), would meet to have in-depth discussions about books they both enjoyed. They decided to take this engagement one step further and expand on their group by inviting other classmates to join in their conversations. Their goal was to have a SAS-like English class albeit a bit more relaxed around the usual classroom Harkness table. They wanted the atmosphere to be small and welcoming. And, so far it has. Spencer and Madeline say the group's average size is six students, but the actual number of students who read the club's selections is much more significant. Madeline and Spencer said that other students have come up to them and expressed gratitude for the re-introduction to pleasure reading.

Reading ignites a certain passion and analytical thinking that our generation deeply lacks."

Celebrating National Poetry Month

We're celebrating National Poetry Month! Throughout the month of April, poets and poetry will be featured and thanks to JSTOR Daily, links to classic American poets and their poems will be offered as well.

And in honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, we will recognize poems about nature. JSTOR Daily's, Ten Breathtaking Nature Poems, piece states the following: "From the ancient Greeks to the late Renaissance revival of pastoral poetry, nature has been a classic topic for poems. In honor of National Poetry Month, we've gathered some examples of verse about some of the wonders of nature, from the landscape to the animals, from the splendor of the seasons, to the simplest slant of light."
