Walking and Talking with . . . M.T. Anderson!

There were many fine and fantastic works of nonfiction for older children and teens in 2015.  One such book won the YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction Award while another won an Honor.  Now those two authors chat about the process of creating narrative nonfiction.  We’ve featured a fair number of Walking and Talking chats on this site, but I think this one is of particular note.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Steve Sheinkin in conversation with M.T. Anderson:

Thanks to Steve for allowing me to showcase his work.  For previous entries in the “Walking and Talking” series, please be sure to check out the following:

  1. I don’t know how I missed this series but I love it! What a great idea. I love seeing authors as comic book characters.

  2. This was just fantastic. And I love the last panel: “The readers are out there.”
