Harry Hurst Middle School book talks
Book Talks in JulieAnna Smith’s reading class have begun. A book talk is where students speak with the intent to convince someone to read a book.

Following a book talk by Smith on The Hunger Games, Gracie Smith gave a book talk on Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys.
