TL Cafe: Skype an Author Network

"Sara Zarr Virtual Author Visit Via Skype, The Unquiet Library, October 2009" by theunquietlibrary

On Monday, June 7, at 8 pm EST, the TL Virtual Cafe hosts the latest in a series of free webinars.

Guest presenters Ramona N. Kerby and Sarah Chauncey will discuss their groundbreaking project and site, Skype an Author Network. According to Kerby and Chauncey, "The mission of the Skype an Author Network is to provide K-12 teachers and librarians with a way to connect authors, books, and young readers through virtual visits."

Anyone who has ever worked in a library can testify to the excitement generated by author visits. Unfortunately, such events can be cost prohibitive to small or underfunded programs.

Virtual author visits offer the same type of interaction and student engagement without the expense.

Join the discussion, and learn more about how to Skype an Author.
