Mad Woman in the Forest Gets a Vlog

by Laurie Halse Anderson • 1,703 views

Laurie Halse Anderson tries to put together a video blog. A vlog. Whatever.

This was great! You're doing well as a vlogger, don't worry :) Next step: editing multiple clips together. Also: I want to read your books SO BADLY, but I have a VERY LONG LIST of BOOKS TO READ. So, sadly, I haven't read you yet. But I feel like I'm a fan. A preemptive fan, perhaps?

"Frankly, when life sucks you don't want to read books about how bad life sucks... unless they're set in another galaxy or have to do with aliens..." Love it. :D

Oh also your reading taste as a child/teen mirrors mine exactly.

Beverly Cleary - one of our heroes. Yes - Henry Huggins. Regarding your love for America & American history. Just finishing Skousen's, The 5,000 Year Leap. Stunned to learn how little I was taught at both H.S. and college level regarding our Founders! Great job, vlogging. Yes - let us hear more.

Yeah! School libraries need all the help they can get! Many schools are ditching them and going to small bookshelves in the classrooms (boring). The internet is not a substitute to reading books, but it is a good supplement. We need professional librarians to help guide readers to the kind of books that will help young readers excel. Love your books by the way. Keep em coming.

Laurie, you have nothing to worry about. You are so cute! Everyone will love your PSAs! I can't wait to see them. Do more vlogging, not because you need the practice, but because they're fun to watch. Please save my job. =)

You're a spokeswoman now? Where did you get all the spokes?

You did a wonderful job. It is not easy to just talk into a camera (at least for me) but I love to hear author's voices. It's a brave new world. Thanks for jumping in; perhaps you will encourage others just as you have with your books.
