Walking and Talking with . . . Elizabeth Wein!
I’m not supposed to have favorites. Periodically Steve Sheinkin will pop up like a magical elf and offer me one of his magnificent Walking and Talking comic series for my blog, and I always thank him profusely, loving each and every one individually. Today’s is different. I’m not sure quite why. I think it has a lot to do with hearing what it’s like for a fiction writer to feel an obligation to her real world subjects not to put false thoughts into their heads. Wein is operating with a great deal of honesty in this cartoon and Steve has edited it down superbly. Even more impressively, this comes off the heels of his recent appearance at the Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards ceremony where he won an honor for Undefeated: Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team. Where he gets the time we may never know.
Don’t forget to catch up with the whole series!
