Video Filled with Literary Stars
Posted by: Keir Graff

Have I mentioned that, among the many exciting things we’re doing in 2009, we’ll be adding original videos to Likely Stories? Shot by our talented Books for Youth editors, they’ll be edited by our singularly multitalented associate editor, Daniel Kraus (he’s a documentary filmmaker and a soon-to-be-published YA author, too).
