Fall Book and Movie Recommendations

Faculty and students have offered a wide variety of recommendations for good movies and books.

“I read Heartstopper in fall because it reminds me of the song ‘We Fell in Love in October'” says Katelyn Robinson, junior.

“I love the original horror movies because they’re scary for the fall season,” says Sandra Whitehead.
