Junior High literacy effort begins


WILLMAR -- About one-third of the students at Willmar Junior High will be participating in a family literacy effort this school year.

About 200 students and their parents have made a commitment to read a book together over the next few months. They will all read "Touching Spirit Bear" by Ben Mikaelson.

In March, Mikaelson will visit Willmar and meet the students and their families at a dinner.
