"Author Visits" Presentation

Our Director of Outreach and Education Jane Owens hosted a meeting of teachers and librarians at the station. She invited me to give a presentation about "Author Visits," our online educational initiative. "Author Visits" takes our pre-existing "Spotlight" author interviews and transforms them into a video series that has uses for classrooms, libraries and book clubs. The project is a collaboration among the production, education and communications departments. Plattsburgh author Amy Guglielmo, a former teacher herself and featured "Author Visits" guest, also spoke to the educators about the uses of "Author Visits" in the classroom, and her Touch the Art book series. Her books may also be used to enhance curriculum.
