Return of PAMKA’s Scholastic Book Fair was a True Success!

Tri-Campus PAMKA Book Fair Chairs Valerie Puryear and Nicole Xu, along with their wonderful team of volunteers, brought the excitement of reading to our three campuses with the 2022 Scholastic “Time Machine” Book Fair. This was PAMKA’s first Book Fair since 2019, and it was a true success! MKA has hosted Scholastic’s largest Book Fair in the country and invited several talented authors and illustrators to share their creative process with our students for years; we are thrilled that this tradition is now back.

Thank you to Julia Mortimore and Eun Jung Park for making our Primary School campus reading extravaganza complete with PJ Night and engaging presentations for our Brookside students by attending authors and illustrators Bryan Collier, Mike Lowery, and Oge Mora. Cara Cesaro and Elizabeth Hejna made sure that every Middle School student celebrated their creativity and love of books by welcoming authors Jeff Kinney, Lois Lowery, Pam Muñoz Ryan, and Jason Reynolds. Jason Reynolds also gave an amazing presentation to our Upper School community, with Becki Hirsh and Janice Jacobson creating a literary space at our Upper School Academic Center.

A special thank you to all of the parents who gave their time and talent to make this special event possible. PAMKA is also grateful to Scholastic for their partnership and our MKA faculty and staff for their continuous support. To view more photos from the 2022 Book Fair, please visit
