Seventh- and eighth-graders at Tiverton Middle School in Massachusetts discuss writing with their favorite authors via Skype as part of the Meet the Author Book Club, a collaboration between school and town librarians. Students prepare for the monthly author interviews by reading a book by the author, then developing questions about the writing process and other topics. "A lot of the students are budding writers, and it's a chance for them to see what it's like on the other side ... and really step into the author's shoes," librarian Kasia Piasecka said.
