Author Visits & Video Conferences

Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures sends each visiting children’s author to an area school for a one-hour question and answer session the Monday following Sunday’s public Words & Pictures lecture. The visit is hosted at one school while six additional schools actively participate through video conferencing technology. An unlimited number of schools can log in to view the event in real time.
