PAMKA's 2019 "Arctic Adventures" Book Fair was a Big Success!

Tri-Campus PAMKA Book Fair Chairs Becki Hirsh and Valerie Puryear, along with their team of volunteers brought the joy of reading to MKA as they transformed all three campuses into a winter wonderland to celebrate the 2019 “Arctic Adventures” Scholastic Book Fair. Every year MKA hosts Scholastic’s largest Book Fair in the country and invites several talented authors and illustrators to share their creative process with our students.

Thank you to Alison Slone and Amy O’Hara for making our Primary School Book Fair a reading extravaganza complete with pajama night and engaging presentations for our youngest readers by authors Malcolm Mitchell and Betsy Bird. Katherine Ruberton and Danielle Qureshi made sure that every Middle School student celebrated his or her creativity and love of books by welcoming authors Rachel Renee Russell, Gordon Korman, and Kazu Kibuishi to speak with 4th through 8th grade students. MKA’s Upper School Book Fair was also an amazing literary journey thanks to author Jeff Hobbs and PAMKA volunteer Chris Eng.

Thank you to the parents on all three campuses that dedicate so much of their time to make this remarkable event possible. MKA is also grateful to Scholastic for their partnership and support of the 2019 “Arctic Adventures” Scholastic Book Fair.
