Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.
Great and uplifting film!

Author Visit: Ben Rehder
We had lots of good questions for him, and he had fascinating, and sometimes funny, answers for us about his writing, how he got started in advertising, his long-term love of reading, his characters, and where he gets his ideas. He said he gets his characters’ names rather than personalities, from people he knows or meets. He liked Vernie’s name, especially, and even said he might use it in a book sometime So, we all have to keep reading Ben Rehder!. Some of us expressed surprise at how much we liked reading Buck Fever, myself included. Ben was not surprised that we didn’t expect to like the book or that we did like it! He said that when women hear about the book, they tend to expect their husbands to read it rather than to read it themselves. One of the many frustrations of being a writer. Ben has published 4 more books about the same characters in various other mystery adventures. He wouldn’t give too much away, but he did describe the books a little, and they all sound good!
Everyone I talked with had a great time reading Buck Fever and meeting the author!
