OU Graduate Student Life is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair Nov. 2-5 to sell books to raise money for Norman public schools.
“This is kind of a fun event we have to bring some nostalgia to campus. A lot of people remember back in middle school when they would go to book fairs. It’s something to bring attention to literacy, and we use the proceeds to donate to a local school around Norman,” said Erika Warbinton, first-year counseling psychology Ph.D student.
There is a wide range of books from children’s books, like "Aqualicious" by Victoria Kaan, to young adult fiction novels like "Girl" and "Stolen" by April Henry, which follows a blind teenage girl as she is kidnapped and held hostage. There are books for adults, too, such as "Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime" by Ree Drummond.
The fair is in Robertson Hall room 311 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day until Friday. Graduate Student Life encourages everyone to treat themselves to the array of books for sale or treat someone else to it for the holiday season.
