The ARHS African Scholars Program will hold a bookfair on Friday, December 5, from 3 to 9 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble store in Hadley. The event is a fundraiser for the group's exchange program with schools in West Africa. Proceeds will go to the program's scholarship fund, which assists students whose families cannot afford the full cost of the exchange trip.
The fair will include a series of Africa-related events throughout the afternoon and evening: children’s stories, scavenger hunt, friendship bracelet workshop, and African Jeopardy game. In addition, the fair will include free ataya (strong, sweet hot tea) and Africa-themed adult and children’s books to browse.
