If you’re looking for a great read to share with your middle-grade grandchildren look no further!

Our guest, Ellen Oh, is the author/editor of multiple books for middle graders and young adults and was named winner of the Asia/Pacific American Award for Literature for her book, Finding Junie Kim.  She has also been honored with the ALAN Award, which is presented to those authors who’ve made outstanding contributions to the field of adolescent literature.  And, in addition to writing these and editing other award-winning novels, Ellen is the president and founder of “We Need Diverse Books.”

Ellen joins us to share all about a unique and fascinating new book entitled, You Are Here: Connecting Flights. This engaging read provides an especially rich look at the Asian American experience because eleven other highly regarded authors of Asian descent have joined Ellen to contribute to the book. The combination of experiences make for an eye-opening look at how twelve young Asian Americans encounter and deal with various challenges in a crowded Chicago airport on a single summer’s day.

So, if you want to share a book with plenty of twists and turns that will give you and your grandchildren food for thought and lots of points for discussion, be sure to tune in!
