They also designed a point-of-purchase poster promoting the new editions. The images on display show the front covers and spines of the book jackets. Participating students are Barbara A. Andreassen, Montoursville; Megan E. Cobb, Wyalusing; Amanda L. Eisner, Harrisburg; Noah B. Hennig, Catawissa; Benjamin D. Kennerly, Plymouth Meeting; Jennifer L. Reeder, Williamsport; Ashten E.
