Babylon Bards Lead Community Members Down Diagon Alley


Claudia Pascale, Staff Writer

The Babylon Bards, the BHS chapter of the National English Honor Society, hosted a great event to promote literature. The book swap was tons of fun and it was obvious that a lot of hard work was put forth. The event was Harry Potter-themed, and student-created posters of the landscape from the movies were everywhere. Brooms were scattered across the area and hundreds of small silver keys were hung from the ceiling. Not only that, but chess sets were available for anyone who could play. Snacks were available as well. The first swap was well-attended. Participants brought $2 and books of their own to “swap,” which enabled them to take a few books home that caught their eye. A dream come true for every bookworm out there. I hope that they do it again next year!
