Contacting Authors --- How do I send a letter to an author? Do you have an author's email address?
Our of respect for author privacy, The Book Report Network will not release the email or home address of any authors. If you would like to contact an author, we suggest that you start by searching to see if the author has a website. You can do this by going to Google.com to search for information about an author website.
If you cannot find contact information on the Internet, we suggest that you write the author in care of his or her publisher. That address can be found in the front of the author's book. Publicity departments forward mail to authors. Here is a sample of how to address your letter:
c/o Scholastic Inc.
New York, NY 10012
