Roeper Holiday Book Fair Coming Soon!

Gift of Reading square crop

Dear Roeper Families,

You are invited to the annual Holiday Book Fair! This year I am excited to announce we will be hosting our book fair through McLean & Eakin, an independent bookseller out of Petoskey, Michigan. This means we will have books specifically selected for our community of readers with a focus on diversity, inclusivity, community, and building a love of reading.

Students may bring money to shop during their class visits or may fill out a “wish list” to share with you when you come as a family. The homeroom book fair visit schedule is on the reverse of this letter and will be published in the Roeper Record as well. Parents, grandparents, and special friends are welcome to shop before, during, or after school. You may also sign up to volunteer during your child’s class visit or another time. See details at the bottom of this letter.

Book Fair Dates and Hours:

Tuesday, Nov. 27, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Wednesday, Nov. 28, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Thursday, Nov. 29, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Friday, Nov. 30, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

As in years past, teachers will be creating “wish baskets” of books they would like to receive for their classrooms. This makes for a great holiday gift that you know will be loved!

If you are in search of a title that is not at the book fair, you can still order it through McLean & Eakin to benefit our fundraiser. Any in-print book is available and can be ordered at the book fair by speaking with a cashier. Special ordered books will be delivered to Roeper the following week and can be picked up from the Children’s Library.


Carmen Pianko, Lower School Librarian
