As a part of Reading Celebration Week, the Marion County High School library hosted a Celebrity Reader Forum throughout the school day, November 16.
Guests from the community and from within the school system joined students in the MCHS library to read selected passages from their favorite pieces of writing and answered questions about their reading habits.
The forum was broadcast live through the MCPS Facebook account. Those videos are available for viewing on the MCPS Facebook page @MarionCountyPublicSchools.
Each guest was introduced by a student host, who also facilitated the question and answer portion of the event, which included discussions about the importance of reading,the types of reading they most enjoy, and how their relationships with reading have evolved.
Teachers were invited to bring their classes to the library to be a part of the event.
MCHS librarian Kim Hardin organized the event.
Although she was not able to be a part of the forum, MCPS superintendent Taylora Schlosser recorded her own guest reader appearance, which can be viewed below.
