Book, books and books!

Hopefully everyone has had a chance to visit our OES book fair in the Upper School this week.  As we get closer to the holidays, I would like to share favorite books and links to help you get ready for the season whether by purchasing the books as gifts or to stock up via the public library (or us) for your own reading.

The New York Times just shared their "Best Illustrated List" and there are some gorgeous books on it.

Who Could It Be? Possibly Mr. Snicket?

Yes, yes, the rumors are true.  Lemony Snicket will be making a very sudden surprise visit to OES.  If you don't know the danger of his books, please watch this video.  And watch this brief video about the title of his newest book, When Did You See Her Last?  You will be able to find him at 1:45 in the Chapel, this Friday, the 8th. Thank you to Powell's for making this visit possible!
