Meet the Author
Giving students direct access to their favorite authors
Meet the Author gives students direct access to authors who share their personal stories, offer writing tips, and encourage students to “keep reading, keep writing, keep dreaming.” During the live webcasts, authors describe their writing process, character development, and ways to build a plot. Students ask questions and authors respond with inspiring and lively commentary.
Nominated for several Emmy Awards & winner of numerous Telly Awards, Meet the Author brings the process of reading and writing to life. The goal of each webcast is to motivate students to read new books, write their own stories, and find and establish their place in a reading and writing world.
