INTERVIEW #1: On Connecting with kids through books
The first program is called "Worlds Awaiting," a wonderful show about Children's Literature put on by KBYU radio. I love listening to all their programs. Here's how their website describes the show...
"A weekly program for grownups who care about children, with topics that will help the rising generation discover literature and experience the world around them. Hosted by children's literature expert, Rachel Wadham, Education and Juvenile Literature Librarian at the BYU Library. Guests include authors, experts, teachers and parents. New episodes Saturdays at 1:30 pm Eastern."
The portion of my interview starts at 13:15. But listen to Kate DiCamillo's book recommendations at the beginning. They are wonderful. CLICK HERE for my interview on connecting with kids through my books.
INTERVIEW #2 : On Agents
The second interview I did a while ago, aired on the Stories Unbound podcast produced my my talented author/illustrator friend Shawna Tenney. She interviews so many people involved in the children's book industry and the podcast provides great information. This episode focuses on building your career, specifically regarding agents. I am honored to be featured on this podcast along with fellow illustrator Russ Cox and Penguin Random House, Executive Art Director Giuseppe Castellano. Shawna wraps it all up very well and everyone is able to provide some great insight into agents in the kid lit industry. Get a pen and paper handy. You'll want to take notes. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.
