Interview with Gloria Spielman

Monday, June 9, 2008.

Gloria SpielmanIf you were to judge a book by its cover, or a biographical story by what you may already have learned, you may miss out on some incredible characters and plot elements. For example, the book Janusz Korczak’s Children. If you were to dismiss the book because the story takes place in Poland during the Holocaust, you’d miss hearing about some very entertaining and inspiring events in an accomplished life.

On this edition of Just One More Book!!, Mark speaks with Gloria Spielman about how a school project by her nine-year-old daughter inspired her to write Janusz Korczak’s Children, how she turned a story with a sad ending into an happy one and she tells us about her next children’s book project.
