On this edition of Just One More Book!!, Mark speaks with Lita Judge, author and illustrator of One Thousand Tracings — a children’s book which tells the true story of the generosity of real people following World War II — about finding an incredible story in her grandparents’ attic, choosing to tell the story in a picture book and how her nomination for a Cybils online book award turned her into a blogger.
