Review quote

"Want to do author visits at your school or library? This directory will be a worthwhile tool for locating authors and storytellers who don't charge exorbitant fees and are willing to travel to your area. Almost worth the price of the directory is the nine-page section of tips on arranging visits, including a detailed timeline. Arrangement of the directory is alphabetical by state. The name of the presenter is followed by the address, Web site or e-mail address, a brief summary of the presentation offered, appropriate grade levels, a key to the cost, a list of works, and any requirements made by the presenter. Indexes include the resources used to locate all these performers, an alphabetical list of performers, and a listing of all performers by state. This is a great resource, which will be invaluable for libraries and schools planning author/storyteller visits. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
