In this episode, we speak with YA author Eliot Schrefer about his experiences conducting classroom visits and some of his fondest memories of speaking with young adults. English teacher Sarah Gross joins Eliot to talk about the ways in which she has prepared her students for some of Eliot’s visits to her classroom, and she shares the impact that author visits have had on her students. In addition, Beth Shaum is back with a new segment of Voices from the Bookshelf, in which she book talks the graphic novels Teen Boat! by Dave Roman and John Green, Relish by Lucy Knisley, and Giants Beware by Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado.
