Pass the Pronunciation Guide Please

Every wonder how to say those hard to pronounce favorite authors' names like Jon Scieszka, David Wiesner, Paul Janeczko, or Avi? Check out this article at the Horn Book. I will add one of my own. Han Nolan, YA writer, is pronounced Han (like hand without the d), not Han (like Hans Solo). She has been one my professors at Hollins in the past and people often mispronounce her name.

Thanks to my new Cybils colleague, Nikki Tate at Work in Progress, for the link.
