Students will stay up all night to read “Moby Dick” aloud in its entirety April 24 – 25 at the Mudd Library for the Harvard-Westlake Moby Dick Big Read, organizers announced at assembly today.

Two of the organizers of the third annual event, Jack Stovitz ’16 and Tiana Coles ’16, said that students who are not able to stay for the reading can listen to the broadcast on KHWS. Food will be provided, and students can sign up to read a chapter on the event’s Facebook page.

On Friday, April 24, HW and the HW Parents’ Association will co-sponsor the second blood drive of the year, this one with the American Red Cross. The drive will be from 8 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. in Chalmers East and West.

An e-mail sent today to Health Awareness club members said there will also be an informational booth about organ donation.

A bake sale will be held April 23 to benefit the charity Friends-International, Jessica Brandon ’16 and Shelby Weiss ’16 announced. The charity works to help at-risk children all over the world return to their families, go to school or to find employment, according to their website. The bake sale will include food from Bake a Difference.

Students from the Society of Global Affairs urged students to attend an event May 17 where speakers will discuss how to bring ideas to reality. Club members also encouraged students to pay more attention to what is going on in the world.

“Our goal is to encourage you guys to listen more and keep an ear out for the world’s problems,” club member Grace Pan ’16 said.
