Members of Phillips Exeter Academy’s Class of 2017 contributed a total of eighty-three different bookmarks to the Class of 1945 Library’s annual Senior Bookmark program. The Library has continued to see increased participation over the twenty-four years of the program with this year’s 83 bookmarks being the largest collection ever.
Each spring, interested seniors contribute a short list of books they’d recommend others to read. This year’s recommendations span a wide variety of genres and literary time periods.
The printed bookmarks are now on display in Rockefeller Hall as is a corresponding exhibit of seniors’ recommended reading curated by Eileen Cusick and Tad Nishimura.
