Staff volunteers Jean Doehring (left) and Susan Hawke sort through hundreds of books for the ninth annual Concordia Used Book Sale. “You find some pretty interesting things, like yellowed news clippings, recipes, and postcards,” Hawke said. “Last year, we even found a typed letter from [The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe author] C.S. Lewis.”

The sale takes place next Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 3 and 4, on the Mezzanine of the Hall Building, with all proceeds going to the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy’s Student Emergency Food Fund and a $1,000 student scholarship.
