Anthropology Club hosting book sale Oct. 17-21 and Oct. 24-28

Submitted by Samuel Kempf

K-State's Anthropology Club will have a book sale from noon to 4 p.m. Oct. 17-21 and Oct. 24-28 on the Quad in front of Waters Hall. The books, donated by the Donna C. Roper estate, cover a range of academic subjects and are priced from $1 to $10.

Roper was a professional archaeologist and research associate professor in K-State's sociology, anthropology and social work department. She died in August 2015.

As an avid reader and dedicated researcher, Roper made many contributions to the field of archaeology over her 45-year career, including expanding and fine-tuning our understanding of many past native cultures. Her stellar record of research in the Great Plains region and her dedication to service and education was recognized with the Distinguished Service Award of the Plains Anthropological Society and the William Duncan Strong Memorial Award from the Nebraska Association of Professional Archaeologists.

Proceeds from the sale will be shared evenly between the Anthropology Club and Roper's memorial fund. Stop by, browse through the books, and ask any questions you might have regarding anthropology or the Anthropology Club.

In the event of inclement weather, the sale will be moved to the front lobby of Waters Hall.
