KidsLit always has great content. Today it features a website called Meet the Author. The site features UK authors giving booktalks about their work. Lots of childrens authors are featured. I loved hearing Eoin Colfer talk about Artemis Fowl. Michelle Paver describes Wolf Brother and Chris d'Lacey made me want to read his book, The Fire Within.
The real treat for me was not a children's author but learning that one of my BBC America GroundForce favorites, Alan Titchmarsh, is a novelist. Titchmarsh's erudite commentary while gardening always made me laugh. Hearing him talk about his books is great fun.
