A moment of silence, please.
Now: on to defending our decision! Long story short, the transportation of books to campus was a logistical nightmare. For years, Sigma Tau Delta had an office in the English Department, making it easy to store books on campus and then set up the sale in just a couple of hours. This year we lost the office, and have had to keep all the books off-campus (a source of stress in and of itself, believe us!). Because of this, the booksale was quickly becoming more work than it was worth. We have had some interest from book re-sellers, and have decided to further pursue this sort of option in the future.
It is a sad moment, ending such a long-standing tradition, however, the sale was no longer a practical option. Sigma Tau Delta has experienced a re-birth of sorts this year, with all new officers and advisors. We don't want to forget where we came from, but we need to look to the future as well. We already have some exciting plans brewing for the very near future, paving the way for a whole new set of traditions!
Those members who were planning on helping out at the booksale to help with funding for their trip to the convention: don't worry! We are working on a way for you to still help with the process. We will be in touch very soon.
