Mark was in Philadelphia last weekend to attend a conference called PodCamp Philly. The sessions focused on social media and podcasting.
After delivering a session, Mark was approached by Melissa Thiessen who told him about an exhibit of art and children’s books by Maurice Sendak.
So, on the Sunday, Mark and his three new friends piled into a car and hustled out to the Rosenbach Museum and Library where they raced through the exhibit in thirty-minutes during a break before rushing back in time to participate in a panel discussion.
This episode features a discussion among four people, connected by a love of children’s books, sharing what they learned and what they love most about Maurice Sendak and his books. Which just goes to show that, like pop culture discussions, children’s book discussions can take place anywhere; even in cars.
Also on this edition, our listener hotline takes a call from Knoxville, Tennessee about the book Monster Mama (written by Liz Rosenberg and illustrated by Stephen Gammell). Thanks for calling!
We’d love to hear your thoughts on a favourite children’s book. Leave us a voice message on our JOMB listener hotline, +1-206-350-6487.
