Author Name Pronunciation Guide

Have you ever wondered how to pronounce the name of an author?

The Teaching Books website offers the following service:
A collection of brief recordings of authors & illustrators saying their names.

Hello, my name is …

Personalize reading with these one-minute audio recordings of authors and illustrators pronouncing and telling stories about their names.
  • Learn the correct pronunciation for names you didn't know how to say
  • Discover historical and cultural details about authors' names
  • Over a thousand "Hello" recordings—and more added weekly
  • Exclusively on
I was a bit disappointed with the website, because I was unable to find the pronunciation of a few author's names that I'm not sure how to pronounce. It would be fabulous to know how to correctly pronounce the names of authors who have unusual names.
