This meeting of the Thalia Kids' Book Club centers on author Pam Muñoz Ryan’s imaginative retelling of poet Pablo Neruda's childhood in her book The Dreamer. Host Madeline Cohen begins by interviewing Ryan about Neruda's difficult, lonely beginnings, what it was like for her write the book, her research process, and the nuts and bolts of creating this richly illustrated "fictional biography". Accomplished actress Rita Wolf performs several dramatic readings from the book, followed by an insightful question-and-answer session with the young audience.

The award-winning author of Esperanza Rising talks about her stunning new book, a fictional biography of Pablo Neruda's younger years that combines elements of magical realism with poetry, history and literary fiction. This inspirational book beautifully depicts how the awkward, shy, imaginative Chilean schoolboy Neftali Reyes, mesmerized by the natural world, became the world-renowned poet Pablo Neruda.
