PHS Author Visit

On February 7th, PHS had the honor of having author Ann Marie Mershon visit our school.  She gave two large group presentations to English classes in the Performing Arts Center during 1st and 2nd hour. She also worked with a class during directed study and presented to another class during 3rd hour. She discussed her life as well as her two main books, Britta’s Journey and You Must Only to Love Them.  Britta’s Journey is about the journey of a young girl and her family as they emigrated from Finland to America.  It is based on the true story of how Ann Marie’s neighbor came to live in America. You Must Only to Love Them is the story of Ann Marie’s experiences as she taught overseas in Turkey. I had multiple teachers talk to me about how much they enjoyed the visit and the students seemed to enjoy it as well.  I’m very grateful that Ann Marie Mershon was able to provide us with this amazing experience.
