In our latest KidsBuzz bookclubbing issue you'll find book giveaways and behind-the-scenes stories from top kids' and teen authors. Don't miss your chance to win a free set of books for your book club, arrange for your readers to talk with the author, get discussion questions, and hear directly from the authors why and how they wrote their books. This week you'll meet:
Mary Amato, who gives younger readers plenty of adventure in the latest installment of her highly praised Riot Brothers series, Take The Mummy and Run. (ages 6-10)
Pat Lowery Collins, who takes readers to 17th century Venice in her historical novel, Hidden Voices. (ages 14 and up). (PS: Be sure to go to Pat's website to hear Vivaldi music performed by the San Francisco Girls' Chorus -- terrific inspiration while reading the book!)
Julie Anne Peters as she talks about "bullycide" and the long-term effects that bullying can have on teenagers, as well as the process of writing her well-regarded young adult novel, By the Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead. (ages 14 and up)
