SCBWI TEAM BLOG Pre-conference Interview: Paul Fleischman

Lee Wind brings us the latest TEAM BLOG Annual Summer Conference faculty interview. Lee talked with award winning author and conference keynote speaker Paul Fleischman. Below is a bit from Lee's interview. Click here to read the full post.

I'm incredibly honored and stoked to interview Paul Fleischman, who will be giving the Monday Aug 2, 2010 Keynote speech, SURVIVING THE NOVEL, at the upcoming SCBWI (Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators) Summer Conference in Los Angeles, CA.

Paul won the Newbery Medal in 1989 for JOYFUL NOISE: POEMS FOR TWO VOICES--a book of lyrical poems about insects that he made both musical and a shared reading experience--bringing the magic of reading a picture book with a child to two readers of any age. It's playful and ingenious, and like so much of Paul's work, redefines the box--while still being outside it.
