So very often, a book from childhood becomes a friend for life – A classic we’ll never forget. The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats was just such a book for our first guest. In fact, this simple tale was important enough to Andrea Davis Pinkney that she found a way to produce her own tribute to the book, its author, and its impact. Rachel Wadham helps us into this story of love for a book in a conversation with Pinkney, who is the author of many books for children and young adults, including picture books, novels, and non-fiction. Her books have received multiple Coretta Scott King Book Awards, Jane Addams Honor citations, nominations for the NAACP Image Awards, the Boston Globe/Horn book Honor medal, and many other accolades.
