My official statement on read-aloud requests during the COVID-19 Pandemic:
HarperCollins Children's has granted permission for authors to allow educators and families to read our books out loud over the internet. Consider this message my blessing to do just that! However, before diving in, I will need you to follow the guidelines set out by my publisher.
You can find those simple steps here: HarperCollins' Permissions.
I sincerely hope you and your loved ones are safe and well, and that you are finding ways to keep your chin up and curiosity sparking during these times. If the characters in my novels can teach anything, it's that in times of trouble, we can all surprise ourselves with our levels of bravery, resilience, and adaptability. We're in this together and we will come out of it together.
With the very best of wishes,
I'd love to hear from you!
Please use the contact form on this page or email me at katie (dot) slivensky (at) gmail (dot) com to get in touch. If inquiring about a virtual visit, please include the phrase "Virtual Visit" in your subject line.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I will be on Maternity Leave through the beginning of November and therefore my response time may be slower over the next few weeks. Thank you for understanding!
You can always follow me on Twitter as @paleopaws or on Facebook as Author Katie Slivensky, or find me on Goodreads.
