The Kinkaid Book Fair was one of the many programs that headmaster John Cooper initiated in 1951 and expanded. This tradition, originally hosted in the school lobby, today takes place in the Melcher Gymnasium.
The event would not be possible without the dedication of Parents’ Association volunteers. Prominent visiting authors are invited each year, often signing books and meeting with students and faculty. A highlight is Family Night, a dinner and book shopping night for the Kinkaid community.
It has become a significant fundraising event, with proceeds going to support all three divisional libraries.
