Virtual Author Day is a membership site dedicated to uniting authors with students in their classrooms and homes. It was developed by Laurie Donahue with LifeSong Publishers. Laurie is the author of 6 children's books and the founder of LifeSong Publishers. She knows the ins-and-outs of children's books and marketing of those books! (getting them to the kids whom they were written for) Virtual Author Day was formed to bring the authors into contact with students (with supervision) and the students to learn from the author's message and what it takes to write a book. Readings, messages, worksheets, and author interviews facilitate new types of relationships with authors and the kids they serve.
