Ready, Set, Read with Alumnus Vaughn Vogel '18

Jennifer Engleman
Vaughn Vogel, St. Mary’s Alumnus '18, is spreading the joy of reading throughout the Orange County area through a virtual kid’s book club at Sage Hill School. It is accessible to Grades 3-5 students. The program is hosted by Grades 11-12 students every month during the 2020-2021 school year. They provide students with books, crafts, worksheets and engaging conversations about books in order to help them develop a deep love of reading and development of invaluable writing skills.
They want to make this virtual book club as widespread and accessible as possible to budding, young bookworms. Books are provided to students through a pick-up program or a list of books can be emailed out. In order to reach communities outside of their immediate Sage Hill community, please inform parents, students and friends that this program is available. If you would like to learn more about the program, please follow this link to their website: If you have any questions, feel free to email them at or leave a note in the “Contact Us” section of their website.
