We spoke to writer Laurie Halse Anderson a few weeks ago about her Revolutionary War novels. But there was more to the conversation – about poetry, track and field, and writing. For this bonus episode, here’s more from Laurie Halse Anderson.
Writers on Writing
We've had the honor of speaking to dozens of wonderful writers over the years. Here are some of the conversations.
Last week, we talked about Gail Carson Levine’s novel THE LOST KINGDOM OF BAMARRE. But there was more to the conversation. This week, we talk to Gail about writing, about the long slog to get her Newbery Honor book ELLA ENCHANTED published, about poetry, and about fairy tales.
Long before Book Club for Kids was a podcast, it was a television show on LA Cable. That's where we discussed Gail Carson Levine's first book "Ella Enchanted."
We spoke to Linda Sue Park about her novel about one of the Lost Boys of Sudan "A Long Walk to Water." But Linda's the author of nearly a dozen books and winner of the 2002 Newbery Award for "A Single Shard." Not surprisingly, she had a lot to say about what she's learned about writing.
Which came first - the story or the illustrations? We ask writer Alan Silberberg. He writes and illustrates "Milo: Sticky Notes and Brain Freeze." Kitty Felde is host.
