A Book Fair is a collection of books for sale from a group of publishers or book dealers. They are held by local bookshops and through major publications like the Los Angeles Times. Items sold can be a collection of rare books or brand new titles from the publisher. The Scholastic Book Fair is a week-long event held in most elementary and middle schools across the country. They work with staff, parents, and school librarians to provide students and teachers access to thousands of affordable books. Scholastic was established in 1920 and has always been a part of educational publishing. In 1981, they launched their first in-school book fair in California. Currently, they host over 75,000 book fairs a year.
