Trinity Celebrates Literature and Reading at Annual Book Festival 📚

K8 Buddies shopping at the Book Festival and creating their book wish lists.

The Trinity Book Festival is an annual week-long celebration of books and reading that gets our students excited about literature. This year, we kicked off the Book Festival with author visits from Kate Messner (Lower School) and Varian Johnson (Middle School). These authors shared their stories and answered questions from our students!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2022 Trinity Book Festival! Keep scrolling for highlights from this year's festivities. Head to the Parent Portal to check out Waldo Photos, where you can find more pics from the Book Festival!

The Literary Character Parade is always a highlight of the Book Festival. Lower School students and faculty dress as their favorite book characters and parade down the drive. Our Blue House Preschool friends got to join in on the fun this year!

To wrap up this exciting week, our Middle School students hosted a bake sale! They'll use the proceeds to purchase Spanish language books for families at our sister school, Rodriguez Elementary School.
