25 Apr 2019 Advent School Book Fair

The Advent School Book Fair is May 14 to May 17. This year, we have changed the format of the Book Fair. Read on for the 2019 schedule.

We are pleased to once again partner with Porter Square Books for the Book Fair. The Fair will be in the Advent library on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Classes will visit the library throughout the week and can fill out wish lists for the books they wish to buy. The wish lists will be kept in the library, and parents and caregivers can purchase (cash and cards accepted) the books during the following days and times:

  • Tuesday, May 14 from 3:15 -6 p.m
  • Wednesday, May 15 from 3:15 – 6 p.m.
  • Thursday, May 16 from 8:15 – 10 a.m.
  • Friday, May 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. (at the SMART Lab)

The School is pleased to host David A. Kelly, Susan Tan, and Stevie Lewis for author visits! Students will have the opportunity to meet these authors and illustrators during the school day.

On Friday, May 17, the Book Fair continues at the SMART Lab immediately after Grandfriends’ Day! Students and families will be able to browse and purchase books, sign up for a Boston Public Library card, and more. Friday’s Book Fair is from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. takes place at the SMART Lab.
