Guest: Andrew Blauner, founder of Blauner Books Literary Agency, editor of "The Peanuts Papers: Writers and Cartoonists on Charlie Brown, Snoopy & the Gang, and the Meaning of Life." Famous for his popular comic strip, Peanuts, cartoonist Charles M. Schulz explored themes of hope and disappointment through wit, humor, and his beloved characters. We explore why Charlie Brown was just the superhero, without the "super," that America needed. Blauner collected the thoughts of Adam Gopnik, Chris Ware, Peter Kramer, among others, in exploring Schulz' 50-year legacy.
