Nueva Book Fair

Community Events

Connect with the Nueva community over a shared love of books

Few events bring our community together quite like the Nueva Book Fair. Our on-campus pop-up bookstores are joyful places where students, staff, and parents meet — either by plan or serendipitously — to exchange ideas about life, the universe, and everything.

While we’re dreaming of a return to an in-person Book Fair in 2021, we’re making the best of the year we’re in! We hope you’ll join one of this year’s virtual events to meet old and new friends, talk books, and share recommendations.

The Book Fair team will also host several staffed shopping hours on Zoom, to (hopefully) answer any questions you may have about the book selection. See details below. Note that Zoom links for all events will be sent through grade-level communications and/or Nvites.

Nueva parent and cookbook author Jennifer Tyler Lee hosts two events for Nueva families

Good news! You can still enjoy the comfort foods you love when you know the tricks for sweetening with fruits and vegetables instead of added sugar. And your kids won’t know the difference! Jennifer Tyler Lee will host two events for the community, sharing advice and recipes from her latest acclaimed book on healthy eating; Half the Sugar, All the Love. Learn more about Jennifer here.
