Connecting to Authors on twitter

This blog is directed at Language Arts teachers , but since we all teach reading and many of you enjoy reading, this might be a good place to start for those of you wanting someone to follow on twitter who will add to your " Professional learning network ".

In this article called the "Book Whisperer", Donalyn Miller who is a 6th grade language arts teacher in Texas talks about how she has connected with authors on twitter, and therefore connected her students to a more enriching reading experience.

She also lists authors and book reviewers from her Twitter page. By "following" her or the other lists she has on her twitter page, it might be a great place to start if you are looking for someone interesting and enlightening to follow on twitter.
