rgz Newsflash: Skype Authors announced on Cynsations
Shout out to Cynthia Leitich Smith for sharing about Skype Authors on Cynsations. You can read the full article here. I'm happy to be a part of this esteemed group making a difference to CAMFED and literacy in schools. Feel free to spread the news to all who might benefit. Thanks!
Here's a snippet from Cynsations:
Skype Authors connects noted children’s book authors to schools and book clubs while benefiting Camfed in 2011-2012.
Noted authors Suzanne Williams, Martha Brockenbrough, Dia Calhoun, Janet Lee Carey, Mary Casanova, Lorie Ann Grover, Joan Holub, Deb Lund, Claire Rudolf Murphy, Lisa L. Owens, and Trudi Trueit have launched Skype Authors, an author-visit-booking site that will aid schools, book clubs, and educational charities.Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from each visit will benefit Camfed, an organization that educates girls in Africa.
I just love the children's book community. Don't you?
