TeachingBooks.net is a time-saving portal to thousands of online resources that support exploring children's and young adult books and their authors--from David Macaulay to J.K. Rowling, from Dr. Seuss to Shakespeare. They have now entered into a partnership with Book Links. "Starting with the September 2008 issue of the monthly e-newsletter Quick Tips, Book Links magazine has teamed up with TeachingBooks.net to give readers free access to online author interviews, discussion guides, book readings and Web sites that support the titles and authors covered in each issue."
While exploring the site I discovered a page where you can have author's names pronounced for you by the author. Fun, useful and you don't have to be a registered user to use it.
If you have not explored TeachingBooks.net before it is worth a few minutes of your time to do so.
