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.
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).
