Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
Author of fantasy novel “Quest of the Keys” Scotty Sanders will participate in a Meet the Author event through a Skype call with a small group of students at J.P. Taravella High School in Broward County, FL. The call will take place on January 29th.
The event is part of Florida’s Celebrate Literacy week, which the high school has been participating in for two years. The initiative is an annual event that celebrates the successes that students, educators, volunteers, parents, and administrators have accomplished in promoting and improving literacy.
J.P. Taravella High School selects one book each year that all of the students will read, and “Quest of the Keys” is this year’s novel. The novel was selected by selected by a literacy committee at the school and will be read by some 3,100 students.
“When I read ‘Quest of the Keys’, my first thought was: ‘our kids have to read this book!’ It’s a great story, but I particularly appreciate the way it deals with common issues that young people face today,” said Parinaz Bristol, Assistant Principal at J.P. Taravella High School, who served on the literacy committee
“Our students are really looking forward to the Skype call with Scotty,” Bristol added. “We have some prospective writers in the group whom I expect will gain some great inspiration from talking to a real author.”
Classes at the high school are also engaging in other activities relating to “Quest of the Keys,” including a door decorating contest and a book talk.
"I hope that the students will come away from this Skype call encouraged that they too can become an author if that is their desire,” said Scotty Sanders. “I believe in encouraging young people to dream big. They need to know they cannot let their own doubts or the cynicism of others allow them to limit themselves."
Quest of the Keys is being used as English language curriculum throughout the U.S. and in several foreign countries. For more information on “Quest of the Keys,” go to http://www.questofthekeys.com.
