Subject: Re: your videos are live!
Deziree played a very important role and one I was at a loss to do: She had the tech expertise to be able to submit these in the proper format to the captioning service (as well as the metadata). No way I could have done it without her!
Wonderful news – thank you so much Guy and everyone else who made this possible!

All—I did not get any notice re when exactly these would go live. In fact, I wasn’t even expecting them to be available today. But they are newly available at
Next week, we will get them on the individual states pages as well, accessible from the NBF map.
Also, the videos are on YouTube.
The individual Hawaii and Wyoming videos will be available soon.
Thanks to you all for this. I’m really glad we could do this for our Great Reads authors.
