Lauren Oliver Stars in the ‘How a Book is Made’ Video Series

We showed you Weldon Owen’s satirical How a Book Is Born infographic. But HarperCollins and author Lauren Oliver have created a video series showing how a book actually gets made–to pull “back the curtain about the publishing process” for children, teachers, and aspiring writers.

We’ve embedded the first installment of this seven-part series above–what do you think? Several publishing executives and Oliver herself discuss all the behind-the-scenes details that went into creating the hit middle-grade novel, The Spindlers.

Depending on the viewers’ response, the publisher could make more of these videos featuring different authors and genres. Follow this link to view all the videos.
