The discussion starts at 7 p.m. at the , and it will be broadcast on MCPS TV.

During the event, Starr will answer questions from members of the audience and from viewers at home via e-mail and Twitter, using the schools' @MCPS account.

This is the third and final book club event planned for the school year, and Starr has said that the discussions give him a chance to reach out to the schools' community, students and staff.

"The book clubs will provide a less formal way for us to have a conversation about education and will provide an opportunity for me to share some of my educational philosophy," Starr said in a statement. "I’m looking forward to a great conversation."

If you'd like to be in the audience for the discussion, RSVP to Pio@McpsMd.org.

You can watch video of the first two events on MCPS's website.
