MHS librarian to help select books for statewide high school reading program

This next year, if a high school student in the state likes a recommended book written by a Texas author, they can thank the librarian at Mission High School, Margie Longoria. She has been selected to serve on the Spirit of Texas Reading Committee. She will become a part of the process of selecting titles to encourage students in grades 9-12 to not only enjoy reading, but to also explore a variety of current, quality books written by Texas authors and illustrators. Longoria said she is thrilled to have been appointed to the committee, as she has wanted to serve on a Texas Library Association (TLA) Reading Committee for quite some time.
The Spirit of Texas Reading Program is a recommended reading list developed by public and school librarians from the Young Adult Round Table (YART). The purpose of the list is to encourage youths to explore a variety of current, quality books from Texas authors and illustrators, develop critical reading skills, and to encourage greater interaction between Texas authors and illustrators, Texas librarians, and Texas youth.

For more information about this program, or to explore the books on the recommended list go to, www.txla.org/groups/SpiritofTXHighSchool.
