Interview with Joan Buzick

Monday, December 10, 2007.

Joan BuzickLet me ask you a question. What went right today?

It’s a powerful question that makes you think about your day and prompts you to give it a positive shine. It can also be a great conversation starter.

On this edition of Just One More Book, author and songwriter Joan Buzick shares how her book What Went Right Today? can start a dialog with a child, the use of a refrain in both music and books to provide an anchor for a young reader and the role that Toastmasters has had on her writing.
