Description: From School Library Journal
Using anecdotes and examples from schools across the country, Buzzeo and Kurtz offer advice on how to create positive encounters between students in grades K-12 and "bookpeople"-authors, illustrators, and storytellers. Readers are walked through successful visits; given pointers on choosing the right guest (glamorous or convenient, expensive or affordable, experienced or novice, etc.); and offered suggestions on how to make the most of curriculum connections before the visit. An extremely valuable section presents alternatives to real-time visits: e-mail exchanges, online chats, young-writer critiques, or other mentoring programs. The authors suggest how to make these contacts, rules of etiquette, possible set-up arrangements, payment, and outcomes. Numerous "Spotlight" boxes introduce a variety of Canadian and American "bookpeople" and how to contact them. "Alternate Connections" provides sources for visits, author and illustrator Web pages, a list of publisher-managed sites for author interaction, and possible satellite hookups for closed-circuit visits. A handy guide, clearly set up, for both novice planners and old hands.
