Abby_pub_pic_webAbby Stokes the author of Is This Thing On? A Computer Handbook for Late Bloomers, Technophobes, and the Kicking & Screaming talks about her book that covers everything from purchasing a computer to navigating social media and e-readers. Abby helps "digital immigrants" (those baby boomers and beyond not born with a keyboard and mouse in hand) understand what everyone is talking about and how to decide what might work best for them.

Abby Stokes has taken on the role of the Johnny Appleseed of Technology crisscrossing the country (speaking at over 100 libraries) to help Digital Immigrants conquer their fear of technology. Abby has single-handedly helped 190,000 people online. A firm believer that “if my mother can learn the computer anyone can,” Abby is confident that everyone can master the computer and navigate the Internet.
