Thanks to the creative thinking and hard work of PCPL librarian Amy Morris, Professor Kathy Short of World of Words, as well as that of authors and their publicists, we at the Joel E. Valdez Main Library were able to host and record remote interviews conducted by small groups of teens who'd intended to meet these Young Adult writers in person at the AZPM studios during the Festival. The sessions took place in the board room at Main on March 14th, and even then challenges continued to present themselves in the form of internet connectivity issues. However, after polishing the poor audio signal we were confronted with that Saturday, we are pleased to direct your attention to the posts of these interviews on YouTube! Enjoy their efforts!
