Tuesday, September 1st, on Write On! Radio, we speak with Jack Gantos about his new autobiographical novel The Trouble in Me. He is the author of many books, including Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, which was a finalist for the National Book Award and Dead End in Norvelt, which won the Newbery Medal - and he's the creator of Rotten Ralph.
We also speak with the editors of Cat is Art Spelled Wrong, an essay collection that asks and answers the question Why can't we stop watching cat videos? and also examines how we decide what is good or bad art.
