Virtual author visits are a great way for bookstores to bring authors to their stores and into schools. Fabled Films Press, Nocturnal's series author Tracey Hecht, and a panel of booksellers who have hosted virtual author visits will share their experiences partnering with each other to create successful virtual author visits. They will also advise on best practices for stores, and special programs like Fabled Films Press' Read Aloud Writing program and more traditional author and book club visits using Facetime, Skype, or Google Hangouts.
