Book Picks for a Snowy Day

Snow Stories

There’s not much better than curling up in a comfy chair with a good book and a cup of cocoa on a snowy day! With winter finally making its appearance, we polled various students, staff, and faculty to ask what their picks were for a good read on a snowy day.
