The current link is: https://www.facebook.com/MarishaPessl/

Looks like "Official" was removed at some point but the link wasn't updated.

Hi Josh

As Marissa Pessl has claimed her author profile, librarians can't edit this. She is responsible for keeping the information on her profile accurate. Sorry!

Emily | 14 comments Darn. I hoped there might be super-librarians who could make a quick fix. Oh well, I'll see if I can get in touch!

Librarians should not be adding anything other than an author's official website to their profile (so no Facebook pages), except for Twitter pages via the special slot for them. Authors with claimed profiles certainly can add links to Facebook, but as mentioned above, librarians cannot edit claimed profiles. And staff only do so if the author themselves requests it (and for some reason cannot make the edit themselves).

Emily | 14 comments My apologies. I didn't know what was and wasn't the limits of librarians originally.
