An Encore Presentation - Conversations With Authors
Two brothers build a cabin and rebuild a relationship; two sisters stay connected through books, even after one is gone; and fourteen drawings that have ignited the imagination of countless children, now inspire some pretty darn good writers, too. We’ll hear from Lou Ureneck, who following a painful divorce, the loss of his mother and a major career change undertook an “experiment in mental health”: Building a cabin in the woods of Maine with his brother. Then, Nina Sankovitch on how she grieved the loss of her sister by reading a different book. Every single day. For an entire year.And finally, Chris Van Allsburg – the author/illustrator behind such works as Jumanji and the Polar Express – explains the Mystery of Harris Burdick and how his drawings have caught the eye of Stephen King, Lemony Snicket and others.
