Canterbury School’s annual Spring Book Fair happens April 18-20 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at 5601 Covington Road. Not only will the event have books for purchase for ages 2 through adult, it will also be a venue for a variety of local guest authors, artists, and expert presentations. The book fair is open to the community

Thousands of quality books were hand-selected for the sale by parent volunteers, school librarians and teachers. Mixed Media Mantra Art by Janet Lynch will be for sale and pottery by Sara Drury will be for sale. And some of Indiana's premier authors of young adult fiction are included in the book fair. Gallery Guests are scheduled throughout each day. This year's guests include local authors John Baumgartner, Matthew Weigelt, Holly Niner, Bonnie Manning, Julie Perkins, PeggySue Wells, Mary Coons, Kristine Papillon, Carol Butler, Blake Sebring, and Doris Gaines Rapp. Other guest presenters include student writer Naomi Gephart, artists Hannah Burnworth and Janet Lynch, family historian Betsy Gephart, craftswoman Ardis Behrendt, science teacher Ted King, educator Laura Semba, potter Sara Drury, student athlete Kyle Towner representing author mom Colleen Kachmann, and Fort Wayne Ballet company dancers.
