Michael Cart talks about the recent passing of Walter Dean Myers

podcastIn this podcast, Michael Cart talks about the career and works of Walter Dean Myers, who passed away on July 1, 2014.

He then takes on a recent article in Slate that got him really steamed up. In the article, author Ruth Graham claims adults should be ashamed of reading so called “children’s books” (and she lumps YA lit into this category) – books like John Green’s A Fault in Our Stars! Needless to say, he has a few things to say about this claim!
