Twitter is the home of the Twitter slow-chat for the books, as well as the hub for a lot of sharing out. The official hashtag for the Global Read Aloud is #GRA15, however, each book also has its own hashtag:
Amy Krouse Rosenthal: #GRAAmy
The Year Of Billy Miller: #GRABilly
Fish In a Tree: #GRAFIAT
Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass: #GRAYaqui
The authors of the books can also be connected with through Twitter and will sometimes even tweet back!
Amy Krouse Rosenthal is @MissAmyKR
Lynda Mullaly Hunt: @Lynmullalyhunt
L.S. Matthews (Whose name is really Laura Dron): @Lauradron
Meg Medina: @Meg_Medina
What is a slowchat? It is when a class posts questions for other students to answer and they post them throughout a week, you can therefore tweet them back at any time during the week rather than during a set time. I will post slowchat sign ups later this summer.
