Author Fan Face-off: A Steve Sheinkin Video Production
It’s been a horrible week. I don’t say that lightly (and it’s only Tuesday) but I say it honestly. The news is awful. If you are like me, you occasionally need something to take your mind off of the awfulness, if only for a little while.
With that in mind, I am pleased to introduce to you today a new Steve Sheinkin series. From the award-winning author that brought you the Walking and Talking series it is . . .
Author Fan Face-off!!!!
The rules are simple. An author and a mega fan of that author’s books go head-to-head, answering trivia questions about that writer’s series. Steve is always present, as is co-creator K-5 librarian and blogger (Librarian Leaps) Stacey Rattner. These vids contain good books and smart kids. What’s not to love?
Here then, are the videos in the series that have come out so far:
Video #1: Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library
Video #2: The Great Greene Heist
Video #3: The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl
Video #4: Spy School
And this just in! I hear from Steve that Video #5 will be released this Thursday and will star none other than Cece Bell!
Well done, Stacey and Steve. Zoom for good instead of evil.
