Episode Twelve: Victory Gardens and Children’s Literature: Interview with Leigh Shearin

Quick announcement: If you try to get in touch with the show over the next few weeks but don’t get a response for a while, it’s because we’ve got a baby due soon and our silence means he came and we are super busy. We’re prescheduling content to come out on a regular schedule, but we may be poor correspondents for a while.

Jb1 cover92414In our second author interview, Leigh Shearin discusses life on the homefront of World War Two and her book for middle grade readers, John Bloom and the Victory Garden. For a fun discussion, have a listen above or see the (somewhat less polished) video below.  Leigh also has a sequel coming out in October: John Bloom and the Victory Garden: Digging In.

Below, you’ll find a few pictures: the cover of the sequel, a map of the fictional town of Appleside, and, of course, an author photo.
