Awesome author of young adult literature Neal Shusterman will be in Second Life today at 7 pm ET/4 pm to talk about writing and his books. The presentation will be telecast into Teen Second Life so that those under 18 can talk to him, too. If you’ve never visited Second Life before, this is a great opportunity to try it while attending an actual event. I remember my first encounters in Second Life were very frustrating mostly because I wanted to see it in action. I knew that people were doing awesome things in it, but every time I went, I didn’t feel that sense of community others were talking about. Then I attended my first author visit, and it was completely different. It takes a little time to set up your avatar and go through orientation.
The event in Second Life is being held at the USDLC Star Island. In Teen Second Life, the event is at Sparta Island, which will be open 30 minutes before the event starts. You can also use a slurl to find it at the Literacy 2 Learn page. For the slurl and more info about the event, click here.
