Bestselling Children's Author to Connect with County Library Patrons in Exclusive Skype Chat
Kelsy Thompson -
SALT LAKE COUNTY, UT — Thanks to a generous donation, bestselling children's literature author Lynda Mullaly Hunt will be chatting with library patrons in an exclusive Skype visit on January 22 at the County Library's Whitmore branch. During the visit, Mullaly Hunt will discuss her current projects, and answer questions about her books and writing process.
Library customer Doni Ricci recently won a Skype visit with Lynda Mullaly Hunt through an auction called KidLit Cares, which donated proceeds to Red Cross relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey. Rather than enjoy a one-on-one chat, Ricci decided to donate the Skype visit to the County Library.
"When I bid and won her prize, I thought it would be more meaningful to include others in the community in the discussion than to talk with her one-on-one," Ricci said. "I volunteer for the City Library and think it is often taken for granted how radical libraries really are and what a great free resource they are for everyone."
WHAT: Skype chat with bestselling children's author Lynda Mullaly Hunt
WHEN: Monday, January 22, 7 pm
WHERE: Whitmore branch (2197 Fort Union Blvd)
