Author Interviews are interviews with authors and illustrators in video, audio, and written formats.
Meet-the-Author Programs are filmed by TeachingBooks.net in the homes and studios of award-winning authors and illustrators to enable readers to connect with the author the moment they are studying a book.
Authors talk about:
Working with ideas
Bringing history to life
Being a professional author
Diverse art techniques
Approaches to book design
Illustrating fiction and nonfiction
Being a professional illustrator
