Bedford, NY (PRWEB) June 10, 2008
As part of its virtual meet-the-author series, Titlepage.tv is greeting Dana Jennings, author of "Sing Me Back Home", today.
"Shortly after we went live in March, we got a lot of feedback from visitors, who were excited about the possibility of being able to interact directly with the authors," said Lina Matta, Titlepage's co- executive producer.
"It took us a couple of episodes to set it up, but, since last month we've invited three authors who'd all previously appeared on a titlepage episode to spend a Tuesday answering questions from our readers. The reaction has been encouraging, and with each Q& A the number of visitors has increased."
The first writer to participate was Keith Gessen, author of " All the Sad Young Literary Men" who answered questions about fictional things that happen to non-fictional people. He was followed by Rabih Alameddine, who wrote "The Hakawati" and had readers in stiches as he described the literary scene in San Francisco. Benjamin Nugent, their third guest, could not escape dealing with questions about "Nerds" but also chatted about his upbringing and his future plans. "The conversation goes wherever the web audience takes it - allowing for an element of surprise," says Matta.
Titlepage.tv, an internet literary talk show was launched in March 08 and is hosted by former Random House Executive Editor-in-Chief Daniel Menaker. The roundtable gathers four authors, to talk about their latest works - books tiltepage believes should be on everyone's reading list. "If you don't have time to read the book, you can always click on titlepage.tv to watch the interviews," says Matta.
