Fuse #8 TV: Steve Sheinkin
Hosting Steve Sheinkin on Fuse #8 TV this month does have a bit of the old bringing coals to Newcastle feel to it. After all, Steve’s been generous in sharing his Walking and Talking comic series with us on this site regularly. So regularly, in fact, that it would be easy to forget that he’s one of our premiere YA nonfiction authors working today. Now his most ambitious book to date is coming out. Called MOST DANGEROUS: DANIEL ELLSBERG AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE VIETNAM WAR, it allowed me to commiserate with Steve over everything from our childhood schools’ failure to teach anything about the Vietnam War to the state of YA nonfiction today. Oh! And I also continue my “Reading (Too Much Into) Picture Books” series with a Dallas-like interpretation of Kathi Appelt’s BUBBA AND BEAU MEET THE RELATIVES. There is also a baby cameo. Yes indeed, I will hock my baby to get you to watch my video. I’m just that cunning.
In case you’re interested, all the other Fuse #8 TV episodes are archived here.
Once more, thanks to Macmillan for being my sponsor and helping to put this together.
