Like everyone else, authors are carving out a niche online for
themselves. From classic writers who lived hundreds of years ago to
today's most popular authors, the Web offers biographies and
bibliographies for many of them. Book publishing companies are always
glad to feature their authors, but some of the best sites I've found
are created by educators and avid fans of specific writers. It is my
hope that among these famed names you will find resources you can use
in your classroom for one or more author studies this year.

Of particular note, our own Jerry Blumengarten has an Authors and
Bookmaking page at that you really
should see. But beware the special effect on the cursor - it's
mesmerizing! His links on Making Books, the Art of the Book and Pop-
Up Book Sites may be especially valuable to you in extending your
author studies to include publication of your own young authors in
the classroom.

Numbering more than one hundred links, I opted not to annotate this
week's edition. The fun is in clicking on your favorite author's name
and seeing what treasures await you. Enjoy!
