Interview with Valerie Coulman

Monday, July 16, 2007.

Val CoulmanSupporting literacy isn’t just about creating great books; it’s also about making sure they’re available to the community. Of course, that’s why libraries exist. Can you imagine if your community closed the doors to its libraries?

On this edition of Just One More Book, author Valerie Coulman speaks with Mark about the closing of all of the libraries in her community, and on a happier note, her book When Pigs Fly and how she develops her story ideas.

This interview was recorded on April 27, 2007 and when we checked with Ms. Coulman on July 15 (the day before this interview was published) she informed us that her community has voted to keep the libraries closed.
