November 8-14, 2019

For one week each November, the MCDS community comes together to celebrate books and our shared love of reading. Please join us for any or all of our featured events, or just come enjoy the amazing selection of books hand-picked by more than one hundred parents, faculty, and staff during our regular hours from Monday through Thursday in the Learning Resource Center. Friends and the public are welcome too!

We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 Book Fair!

BOOK FAIR LUNCHEON

This year's Luncheon will feature R.O. Kwon, author of The Incendiaries. 

Named a best book of the year by over forty publications, The Incendiaries was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle John Leonard Award for Best First Book, Los Angeles Times First Book Prize, and Northern California Independent Booksellers Association Fiction Prize.

Kwon’s writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Guardian, The Paris Review, Buzzfeed, NPR, and elsewhere. She has received fellowships and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Yaddo, MacDowell, the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, and the Sewanee Writers’ Conference. Born in Seoul, Kwon has lived most of her life in the United States.
