GatheringReaders Virtual Discussion 3: Email an Author/Illustrator/Storyteller

Hello once again and welcome to the GatheringReaders Virtual Discussion this October. It was great to have finally met the new GatheringReaders participants at the Jurong West Public Library. I felt that I had met kindreds in the presence of so many wide-eyed, bright young minds who can hear voices from books. I thought that it was a lovely meeting, and I do look forward to seeing you all again in two weeks’ time.

This month, our Book Club Activity is for you, young ones, to email an author/illustrator/storyteller – and to share your experience when we see each other again on 24 October, Wednesday, 5-6 pm at the Jurong West Public Library.

I am also calling on my Author Friends who may be interested in getting to know my bright Gathering Readers participants via email. Please leave a comment so that I can arrange a virtual get-together. 🙂

I only have a few questions to ask this month:

  1. Please share a bit about your top three target authors. Who are you planning on ‘stalking’ in the next two weeks?
  2. How do you plan to correspond with this author/illustrator/storyteller?
  3. What are the questions you are planning on asking? Share with me your planned interview questions.
  4. Do you think the author/illustrator/storyteller would respond to your questions? Explain your answer.

See you all again in two weeks’ time!
