On May 16, author Mary A. Monroe spoke with reading students from Polo Park Middle School. In addition to hearing about the inspiration for Monroe’s books and ideas to become writers, the students were treated to the author reading excerpts from her books. The students participated in a reader’s theater and an author question and answer session. A drawing was held, and many students received books, which Monroe graciously autographed.
