Dear Jean and All,

 

Scholastic has since walked this back and will not be offering the separate book display in 2024. They released a statement on social media yesterday.

 

Here’s a link to the statement: http://mediaroom.scholastic.com/press-release/update-scholastic-us-book-fairs?eml=CORP/smd/20231025/Twitter/Feed/lkpt/all/awr/announce/

 

Some are applauding this reversal; some are still upset by the separate displays that will accompany the Fall 2023 Scholastic book fairs for elementary schools.

 

Best,

Judi
