This podcast will explore how children’s book authors are responding to world events, give you an inside look into authors’ and illustrators’ creative processes, and, of course, provide you with all the children’s book recommendations you could ever wish for. Give our introduction a listen, then check out Episode 1 about the border wall and hear Latinx book creators Meg Medina, Jenny Torres Sanchez, and Guadalupe Garcia McCall share their thoughts about writing for children in this current political climate.
