Author Interviews

Periodically we interview an author, illustrator or well-known educator and feature them in our Compendium best-new-titles publication, Grant Channel or eMackin. For your convenience, we have compiled all the interviews on this page for you to click and read; each one provides interesting and fun facts about the author/illustrator and their work. We hope you enjoy reading them!
