Book Discussion Groups

On Friday afternoon, September 9th, St. Andrew's held their annual book discussions. These book discussons are designed to have groups of students meet with various faculty members; to chat about the literature they recommended for summer reading. 319 students had a list of 53 books in which to choose, all selected by their teachers. The directive to the students was to read two books from this very diverse list.
