Dailey Jogan ’24

The benefits of rereading a book can impact its worth more than expected after the first time you read the text. Supervising Page Editor Dailey Jogan ’24 expressed that rereading text can be a timeless experience. “A good book possesses the qualities of humor, reflection, and a sense of timelessness that no matter how old I am I can always have new takeaways from the book,” Jogan said. “My favorite book is Staying Fat For Sarah Byrnes by Chris Crutcher. This book opens the discussion on many topics that are seen as taboo in our culture and allows personal growth and reflection within these topics each time I read it.”


Paul Kaminski ’24

When looking for the qualities that make up a good book, Supervising Copy Editor Paul Kaminski ’24 said he looks for comedy, war, romance, drama, and allusions and references to other sources that add to the depth of the book. “My favorite book is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez,” Kaminski said. “Good books have that depth where you can enjoy it more by rereading it. Reading a good book can benefit you by exposing you to new ideas, cultures, and philosophies that expand your worldview.”


Mira Haurani ’25

The tales of heroism inspire the next generation. Web Editor Mira Haurani ’25 said she looks for books that will inspire and benefit her in the future. “My favorite book is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott,” Harauni said. “Little Women is a heartwarming story that also provides some insight into what life was like in the late 1800s. I love reading stories that leave me feeling fulfilled; it’s inspiring to see how life can change and affect your life.”


Audrey MacGillis ’25

Diving deep into touchy subjects is one of the harder things writers can do. Copy Editor Audrey MacGillis ’25 said she is a fan of an author who can fulfill the ability to dive deeper yet also create an interesting plot that drives the message of the plot through the characters to the reader. “My favorite book is We Are Okay by Nina Lacour,” MacGillis said. “It is my favorite book because it does a deep dive into mental health struggles and the author finds a way to connect with the readers and bring light to the subject.”
