The English Club

by Michael Lasley

The English Club was rebooted for the 2014-15 school year. The club wanted to find new ways for students and faculty to engage with each other (and with ideas) outside of the classroom. Three students – Addison Beck, Avery Unterreiner, and Frankie Bastone – helped organize and host four events over the course of the year. During the Fall Quarter, the club hosted a screening of The Fault in Our Stars, an adaptation of the novel by John Green. During the Spring Quarter, Michelle Burnham organized an alumni panel, an event that gave students a chance to hear from six of our alumni about the ways their English studies inform their careers. The club also sponsored two traditional storytelling nights. The first night featured Tim Myers, and the second night featured Tim Myers and Andrew Garavel. We are looking forward to hosting more events next school year.
