The bookends supporting the books feature inkwells with quills – commemorating the beginning of the Schlesinger Writer-in-Residence program at SPS.
The bottom left corner represents the fire that occurred in the Drury dorm.
The bottom right corner features a rainbow flag with the letters “GSA” celebrating the founding of the Gay Straight Alliance.
