During the discussion, Starr will answer questions from members of the audience and from viewers at home using e-mail and Twitter, tweeting as @MCPS.

In Drive, Pink argues that the key to motivating people is not simply rewarding success but instead engendering a sense of autonomy and purpose.

This is the second of three book club events 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."

Starr's first book club event discussed Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck, and you can watch video of the talk on MCPS's website.
