Annual book fair continues fine art tradition

Canterbury School is bringing in a number of award-winning authors and artists to book fair.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Thousands of books from more than 35 categories will be on display at Canterbury School’s annual Spring Book Fair. Parent volunteers, librarians and teachers have hand selected the books for grade levels kindergarten through middle school for more than 20 years.

Organizers said that graphic novels are a popular item this year. They will have a variety of graphic novels for different ages including classic novels, chapter books, picture books, cookbooks and craft books.

Local authors, illustrators, cookbook writers, dancers and artists will be guest speakers and will feature their work during the book fair. Artwork by Vicki Junk-Wright, local artist and Canterbury High School art teacher, will be for sale as well as works from Janet Lunch, Ana McNabb and Jane Berner. Nine authors will be making special presentations in classrooms to students and teachers.

The school will also hold an informal Bistro Lunch during the book fair. A panel of experts will provide literary recommendations to parents for specific grade levels.

All of the events, including the Spring Book Fair, are open to the public. The event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 14 to Thursday, April 16 in Canterbury Lower School.

Proceeds from the book fair will benefit the school’s three libraries.
