The author of the beloved books Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life and A Mango-Shaped Space talks with the 2010 Newbery Award-winner Rebecca Stead (When You Reach Me) about her latest novel - a delectable concoction of mystery, friendship, and humor told from the point-of-view of four narrators who find themselves in a candy-filled world of surprises.
An excerpt will be performed by Maxwell Beer (Jeremy in the upcoming film version of Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life).
In this meeting of the Thalia Kids' Book Club, much-loved author Wendy Mass takes listeners inside the brightly colored, sugary world she created for her book The Candymakers. After a short reading from actor Maxwell Beer, the novelist Rebecca Stead interviews Mass about her writing and research process, what she was like as a child, her favorite books, and her special relationship with sweets. The energetic young audience then takes part in a writing prompt, and asks Mass some great questions about where she gets her wonderfully imaginative ideas.
