Every school day March 2 - March 19 we will post a question about the the Girls Gone SciFi authors and/or their books. 
Answers to the questions will be posted the following day along with the names of students and staff names that answered correctly.  The student and staff member who answer the most questions correctly will win a copy of one of the authors' books and first place in line for autographing.  Winners will be announced March 20 at lunch in Titan Center.

Girls Gone SciFi Authors come to PHS March 20

On Friday, March 20, we will be visited by 4 young adult science fiction authors.  They will speak to classes 4th period and then meet with any interested students and staff in Titan Center at lunch.  In anticipation of their visit the library will host two contests: an online daily trivia contest and a coloring contest.  For more information about the authors see the web page Girls Gone SciFi (created and maintained by senior Shannon Shaffer).  Check back here daily for the Author's Trivia Question and more contest information.
