Hello Canadian teen book readers! Change of authors this month - Christina Minaki's Burning the Boats launched on May 24th, but due to my personal medical problems I was unable to get together with her to tape our podcast. Look for her in one of my special summer podcasts that will be available through the CCBC's Twitter feed.
Instead, I took advantage of the CCBC/TD Book Week and met up with BC author of Are You Seeing Me? and the upcoming Infinite Blue, Darren Groth, at the Hamilton Public Library. Coming in at one hour and seventeen minutes it is a longer podcast than my previous ones, with Darren and I discussing his being a Australian/Canadian author, visibility of of disabled characters, and the importance of authentic voices. Don't be surprised if you hear piano music in the background. Enjoy, and happy reading! - Amy
