Crenshaw - Katherine Applegate

Sometimes, you just need a friend. Even if he’s imaginary, like the gigantic purple cat named Crenshaw. That’s the name of Newbery Award winning writer Katherine Applegate's new book "Crenshaw." The book is the story of a family on the verge of becoming homeless. Our student readers from Gunston Middle School talk about their own experiences volunteering at a homeless shelter. Actor Rodney Lizcano from the Denver Theater Center is our celebrity reader. Kitty Felde is host.
