Skype, software that allows users to make voice and video calls via the Internet, may change the way libraries present author talks to their customers. Here’s an opportunity to see how it works while meeting one the most popular authors of urban literature for young adults.
Earl Sewell will Skype with his readers at the Ralph Ellison Library, 2000 NE 23rd, on Thursday, August 18, beginning at 6:30pm. Readers are encouraged to bring questions and comments for the author, who will chat live.
“Earl Sewell is the author of over a dozen novels for young adults,” said Ralph Ellison librarian Taryn Kingery, “including several titles in the popular KimaniTru series. His books, while being very entertaining, address the problems and concerns of contemporary urban teens.”
The Earl Sewell Skype session is free and open to the public.
