  • "The Collectors" - by Kellie Worrell. A children's book for ages 6 to 14. The Collectors is the story of two young boys who discover a beetle in their backyard. This evolves into an adventure in entomology, including attending Hokie BugCamp, Hokie BugFest, and winning the 4-H statewide insect collection contest held each year at Hokie BugFest. Copies for sale and shipped in bulk orders only (boxes of 38 books) to avoid excessive individual shipping costs. Books are also sold to individuals at the annual Hokie BugFest. These books are available for 4-H programming and individual enjoyment at $10 each.
