If you're quoting multiple lines from the same source, 40 or more words, you should put the information in an indented block of text.

A good place to look for additional APA citation help is at the APA Citation Guide, or at Purdue OWL.  Both are linked below.

In the Purdue OWL example, the author's name is introduced earlier in the sentence, so it is not included in the in-text citation. If the author is not named earlier in the sentence, place the author's last name, the year of publication, and the page number in parentheses after the quotation.
