Book fair, signing benefits Staples High School
Published 1:10 pm, Monday, December 6, 2010
Support Staples High School and enjoy a laugh Tuesday with a Holiday Book Fair and book signing by Westport author Mary Lou Weisman and Mad Magazine artist Al Jaffee. They will sign Weisman's recent book, "Al Jaffee's Mad World," at 7 p.m., followed by a concert by members of the Staples High School Jazz Band.
The evening event will punctuate an all-day holiday book fair to benefit the high school PTA's Wrecker Mini-Grants program, which enables SHS teachers to acquire curriculum-enhancing equipment or software. Student artwork also will be on display.
As part of a special high school-to-high school outreach program, the Staples PTA invites patrons to purchase and donate books to support the reading program in the Bridgeport high schools. A list of requested books will be available. Holiday wrapping will be available.
