Today’s show is a tribute to the great man and author, Walter Dean Myers, National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. I replay an interview I did with him for my 100th episode.
Walter was the author of Monster, among many dozens of other award-winning books.
Read this tribute to Walter from Lee Bennett Hopkins.
