If you love to read and have always thought about becoming a member of a book club, now’s your chance. Seniors Meredith Rodgers and Rayelynn Lewis recently formed a book club at Lamar welcoming all students to come and discuss a variety of books. They are embarking on a literary journey that promises not only good reads but also a sense of community and a chance to give back. Their enthusiasm for books drove them to establish a book club, a community where students can share their literary interests and discoveries.

“We both love reading, and we wanted to bring together a community of readers at Lamar that we were surprised didn’t
already exist,” Lewis said.

Everyone is included in the club and gets a say in the decision-making process. They seek input from their members and officers to choose the next book. Through social media and officer meetings, they collaboratively select three options and present them for a club-wide vote.

“We want to make sure everyone gets a say in what we read,” Lewis explains.

Their reading choices know no bounds. This commitment to diverse reading materials ensures that every member finds something that sparks their interest.

“We’re open to and plan on reading all types of books, any genre, any author all while remaining school-appropriate,” Rodgers said.

But the Lamar Book Club isn’t just about flipping through pages, it’s also about building connections and having the opportunity to help people.

“We do plan on having fun activities throughout the year as well as potentially organizing a book drive to give back to the community,” Lewis said.

Meetings will be held once a month where they will discuss the chosen book of the month.

“The book club meets once a month every month in the 11A lab,” Rodgers said.

Their club doesn’t end with graduation, Lewis and Rodgers have their eyes set on a lasting legacy at Lamar.

“Since we’re seniors, our main goal is for the club to thrive after Meredith and I leave,” Lewis said.
