Around the Web with OAV Authors: October 2015

It’s the fourth Thursday in October, which means it’s time for our monthly roundup of links to a few interesting tidbits featuring Online Author Visits members:

Mother Daughter Book Reviews enjoyed Goldilocks Breaks In, a book in the Grimmtastic Girls series by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams.

Looking to schedule a Skype visit with one of our terrific authors? As always, we encourage you to visit our Author Profiles page to see bios, presentation topics, fee structures, and contact information!

Speaking of virtual visits, a reminder that OAV’s author of the month, Trudi Trueit, is running a contest through October 31 — and one of her prizes is a FREE half-hour Skype visit. You’ll find details about how to enter that giveaway online here.

In this Sounders FC video, Clare Hodgson Meeker discusses her inspiration for the chapter book Soccer Dreams: Playing the Seattle Sounders FC Way.

Registration is still open for Dana Sullivan’s fall graphic novel workshops scheduled at several Seattle-area King County Library System locations.

Ooh, here’s a super-fun find: the trailer for I Remember the Sky, Sony Japan’s film version of Janet Lee Carey’s novel Wenny Has Wings.

And, we’ll close with this wonderful photo of Dori Hillestad Butler and one of her adorable young fans, taken during last weekend’s Humboldt County Children’s Author Festival.
