• Marietta Reads! One Book Marietta Project:

    The One Book Marietta project was created to provide the Marietta Community a common experience of reading the same book so that impromptu book discussions, shared inquiry, as well as organized book clubs and events can spring up to connect us through a literary work. Adult readers can model reading and serve as literacy leaders to our youth. Each school chose their own One Book for the 2019-2020 school year. The titles were shared with the community at the Marietta Reads! kick-off on Saturday, September 14th, from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. on the Marietta Square. This year's One Book Marietta theme is "Courage Uncovered." All books are listed below.  We encourage you to read, share and enjoy each book.
