The Thalia Kids' Book Club really gets things started with a bang this season when it brings superstar kids' author Judy Blume. Blume speaks with Banks Street librarian Lisa Von Drasek and it's clear that the two have great chemistry. Blume delights her young crowd with unique anecdotes from her life, a reading from her Pain and The Great One series, and even a cool new writing exercise. Thalia Kids' Book Club is a must for any young person interested in having great literary conversations!
The beloved author, who has received more than 90 literary awards, makes a rare appearance to discuss her series for young readers ages 6 and up with the children's librarian at the Bank Street School for Children, Lisa Von Drasek. The event features a discussion with the audience.
So good to get an insight into Judy Blume's approach to her craft.
This is a lovely resource for anyone considering creating stories for children.
Blume's patience and respect for the audience she creates for comes through abundantly clear in the way she deals with and speaks with her young audience.
This was a delight to listen to!
