Today's show is a tribute to the great man and author, Walter Dean Myers, National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. I replay an interview I did with him for my 100th episode. 

Walter was the author of Monster, among many dozens of other award-winning books.

Read this tribute to Walter from Lee Bennett Hopkins.

Today's sponsor is Video Idiot Boot Camp and as a bow to that, I've created a new free mini-course called How to Use Screenflow which you can find at ScreenflowDemo.com

 

I have a whole slew of guests in this episode!

 

In part one I asked everyone I saw at NJ SCBWI 2014 the same question,

"If you could get lost in any children's book, which book would it be, and why?"

 

Below are the writers who answered. You'll have to listen to find out the fun responses!

 

In part two I have Ray Briant, a firefighter who invented an app that will be an amazing research tool for writers, and history teaching tool for educators. Listen and see if you can resist helping Ray's Kickstarter for his app TiloTag get funded!
