Then, Ellen Handler Spitz is the author of many books on psychology and aesthetics. She talks with Jim Fleming about her latest - The Brightening Glance: Imagination and Childhood.
Next, Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Michael Chabon has written both for adults and young readers. In a recent book of essays, Manhood for Amateurs, Chabon tackles his own childhood. Here he tells Steve Paulson how his past still influences his writing.
And finally, we hear a montage of clips from classic children's books, then Steve Paulson talks with Julia Mickenberg, co-author with Philip Nel of Tales for Little Rebels. Mickenberg tells Steve that some of the best known children's book writers were longtime political radicals. [Broadcast Date: September 23, 2011]
