Author-page style refers to in-text citations. What this means is when you bring up a citation in your essay, you must refer back to the Author of the source, and (if applicable) the page that the source can be found on in its container.
What this looks like:
"Author-page style is usually in terms of bagging, and should be brought up at the end of a citation." (Author 11).
or if you're tagging your author (bringing up the name at the beginning of the sentence):
Author claims in their book that "Author-page style can be used for tagging, and will start with the author and end with the page number." (11).
