Staples Book Fair Hits Barnes and Nobles: A One Day Opportunity to Enjoy Entertainment and Shop for the Holidays


If you need to find a book to serve as a holiday gift or to read for personal enjoyment, the Staples Book Fair at Barnes and Nobles is an event worth attending.

Tuesday Dec.11 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Barnes and Noble will donate between 10 and 20 percent of the proceeds to Staples when patrons mention Staples High School at checkout. The funds raised from the event will go to enrichment programs for students.

According to Liz Kaner, Co-Chair of the Book Fair, they have events planned all day that incorporate the Staples community in order to liven the shopping experience.

One of the headline events is author Dan Woog, who will be signing his new book We Kick Balls: True Stories from the Youth Soccer Wars from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Woog looks forward to the book signing because it not only will likely increase his book sales, but it also provides him with an opportunity to connect with his fans.

“It’s always good to hear why people come, and what interests them about my books. I like to take time with everyone. That’s easy to do because I’m not exactly someone like JK Rowling, signing hundreds of books at a time,” Woog said.

Following Woog, the Collective Jazz Project of Staples musicians will share their talent with shoppers from 5 p.m to 7 p.m.

Josie Fair ’13 finds that the book fair comes at the perfect time because it will help her complete her holiday shopping. “The entertainment is a plus, but I’ll be focused on getting presents for family and friends. Barnes and Nobles has a large selection that makes the process easy,” Fair said.

The holiday season serves as a perfect time to not only shop for gifts, but to donate to a good cause. The Book Fair is a one stop shop for gathering with friends, enjoying the talent of the Staples community, and purchasing gifts. “There are just so many reasons to come out to the book fair,” Kaner said.

About the Contributor
Haley Zeldes
Haley Zeldes, Sports Editor
Haley Zeldes is finally a Senior Girl who, along with the other queens in her class, orders the school to “13OW DOWN” to her as she takes on her final year at Staples. Although she is excited to claim her throne, she has not lost sight of the fact that this may be the beginning to her end. Zeldes has made it a priority of hers to stay committed to Inklings for she feels that Inkling’s strength is how everyone works really well together, creatively, and works off of each others ideas to make the best stories possible-she definitely wants to remain apart of that community where she is confident as the new features editor. “I’ve watched other writers in the past take the stories that I’ve wanted-but not anymore. It’s my turn now,” Zeldes said. In addition to writing feature articles, what you can expect to see from Zeldes is some eye-catching layouts in the next issue. She is extremely excited to experience layout again and to make interesting pictures that will help the pieces stand out. Queen Haley is one hard worker that’s for sure, who is willing to put her best foot forward to make the paper as successful, if not more successful, than it has been in previous years. “I want to leave my mark on inklings and share my knowledge with underclassmen,” Zeldes said. “I’m hoping that when I leave, Inklings will continue to strive.”
