This weekend marks the return of the Lower Division book fair, which has been hosted annually for over 30 years. This year’s theme is “wild about reading.” This year the Book Fair is located in the Lower Division gymnasium, where students can browse books, participate in raffles, and showcase writing and art projects they have created.
Three authors have been invited to speak about their own books at the fair: Stuart Gibbs, author of the “Spy School” series, and Ruby Shamir, author of “What’s the Big Deal About First Ladies”, and “What’s the Big Deal About Freedom.” “My Weird School” author Dan Gutman was unable to make it in time for the fair, but visited earlier this month to meet students.
This year, the book fair is running in association with Caring in Action day, and will feature a scavenger hunt for students to enjoy on Saturday.
“Our vision of the book fair is far more than just a book sale,” Lower Division librarian Laura Cosson said, “We really like to make it a community event.”
