Something About the Author

Something About the Author (SATA) has finally gone digital! It has always been available via Gale Virtual Reference Library but it now is a separate database. This will be a tool that both kids and adults will want to use.  In December, besides having its own link it will also be available on our Literature Criticism Online database. This series has about 10-13 volumes a year and it will be kept updated as they become available.
