GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - The Grand Island Public Library hosted a zoom call for patrons with New York Times Best Selling Author and Central Nebraska native Alex Kava. She’s sold over six million copies worldwide and has won a ton of awards for her Ryder Creed mystery series.

People got to ask her questions and compliment her via zoom messages about her books and although the library couldn’t get her in-person due to Covid-19, they still like to provide virtual programming like this for authors to share their expertise.

“I know a lot of people that are voracious readers or at least had the thought, maybe I should write a book and it kind of gives them the opportunity to ask someone whose had success in the field what it’s like to write or get advice,” said Librarian Shaun Klee.

This isn’t the first time the library has hosted Kava but this is the first time they’ve done it through Zoom where people could stop by to either watch it in one of their rooms or at home.

“We’ve done virtual programming but most of them were pre-taped and then just went live at the time that we did it, so this is our first kind of live hybrid event that we’ve done like this,” Klee said.
