Book Fair display at the Formal Lounge
 Missouri Valley College hosts the annual book fair by Student Missouri State Teachers Association. The event is organized to help raise money for students and schools. This year’s Scholastic Book Fair is held at the Formal Lounge from Nov. 15-17, coordinated by Amelia Fizer, the president of S-MSTA.

The books available at the book fair are geared largely toward young readers on a vast spectrum of themes, from “How to Eat Fried Worms” by Thomas Rockwell to “A Bad Kitty Christmas” by Nick Bruel.

“The book fair event is the main fund raiser,” Fizer said. “We try to generate profit and help schools like Latham School that was caught on fire and suffered major damages.” And it is to also help Marshall pre-school, thus the local community, Fizer added.

The book fair is not exclusively for charity purposes, but it is also a way for people to get Christmas shopping done earlier.  Seth Martinko, a physical education major, said he came to the book fair because he was buying “A Calvin and Hobbes” collection for a friend as a Christmas present.

Caleb Clevenger, a  junior vocal performance major, said, “I am at the book fair to find a book for my little sister.”

 S-MSTA thanks students, faculty, and staff for their support and contributions to the cause.
