Great School Speakers Bureau Teen Read Week A Smashing Success

Dear John,
Teen Read Week
October 12-18,áhas been one of my favorite celebrations as a speaker's agent for over 10 years now. The national campaign by the American Library Association to encourage our young adults to read is an annual event at our bureau. áThe awesome logos and promotional items make the celebrations fun and easy to plan. áThe 2014 logo "Turn Dreams into Reality @ your library was the slogan of our bureau for the past few weeks.

Our author visits this year included: Bassfield High School and Prentiss High School

Teach and Inspire Every Student
Teen Read Week
Jefferson Davis County School District (Mississippi) in association with Great School Speakers Bureau held its third annual Teen Read Week sponsored by the American Library Association to celebrate the joys of reading. The author visit provided an environment for students to share their love of books artistically and express themselves in written and spoken poetry. "It's important that [the students] have a place to express themselves, and that this event provides just the right atmosphere for all teens to feel comfortable," said Will Russell, Principal Bassfield High School.

Great Success @ Bassfield High Schoolá
#TRW14
Teen Read Week across the country and Bassfield High School(BHS) Library participated in the celebration. On Wednesday of last week, teens from Bassfield High School came to the author visit and "book talked" by Celia Anderson.

While listening, BHS students enjoyed Anderson's auditorium style presentation G.A.M.E.T.I.M.E (Gaining A Meaningful Education To Insure Maximum Elevation), which motivates students to "get in the game of life".

BHS students were able to answer GAMETIME quiz questions. Finally, students were invited to share áand "booktalk" their own personal favorite book by #AuthorCelia.

An enjoyable time was had by all who participated in the week's activities!

A SUCCESS @ Prentiss High School!!!
Last Week #TRW14
Prentiss High School increased its tween and teen programming to encourage young adults to discover the fun there is to be had at the library.á Teens are usually one of the hardest demographics to attract to libraries; however, they don't seem to be having any problems with that. Offering a day-with-an author and a great selection of popular young adult literature by Celia Anderson. Over 200 students attended and participated...and THAT'S AMAZING!!!

Invite author Celia Anderson to your school and watch your students change...watch their attitudes change. ~Mrs. Rose Atkins, Guidance Counselor at Prentiss High School

All in all, we had a SUCCESSFUL Teen Read Week in Jefferson Davis County School District with tons of tweens and teens rushing out to cop books by #AuthorCelia Anderson. We certainly showed youth they don't need all the gadgets to have fun at the library, because by interacting with Celia, anyone could see and/or hear that she was having a blast.
