Authors Who Skype with Classes & Book Clubs
I’m Kate Messner, the children’s author and educator who maintains this site.
I started it because I’ve found that virtual author visits are a great way to connect authors and readers, and I realize that many schools facing budget troubles don’t have the option of paid author visits. With that in mind, this is a list of authors who offer free 15-20-minute Q and A sessions with classes and book clubs that have finished reading one of their books.
As an author, I offer free Skype chats for the following titles ...

Mem Fox
http://memfox.com/
I’ve been a writer for many years, but for many more years I worked in a university, teaching teachers how to teach reading and writing. So this website is about me, my life, my opinions, my books, my teaching and my feelings about being a writer.
I read aloud several of my books on this website, and in my bossy fashion I have also included a spoken lesson on how to read aloud well.

Wired for Books
http://www.wiredforbooks.org/
For many years, most of the best writers of the English language found their way to Don Swaim's CBS Radio studio in New York. The one-on-one interviews typically lasted 30 to 45 minutes and then had to be edited down to a two-minute radio show. Wired for Books is proud to make these important oral documents publicly available for the first time in their entirety. Listen to the voices of many of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.

21 plays by Shakespeare printed in quarto
http://www.bl.uk/treasures/shakespeare/homepage.html
On this site you will find the British Library? 93 copies of the 21 plays by Shakespeare printed in quarto before the theatres were closed in 1642.
The texts date from Shakespeare's lifetime and are pamphlet editions of plays prepared to be sold after performances had finished.
The quarto editions are thought to be Shakespeare's working drafts, copies for rehearsals or records of versions remembered by actors.
Quartos were not produced in large numbers because they were not very popular or profitable.
Accompanying the online collection is background material, essays by Shakespearean scholars, commentaries, images and sound clips.
Tools on the site allow scholars to compare different versions of the same play to track textual changes.
