In this episode, Young Adult author Lynda Mullaly Hunt speaks to Katherine Sokolowski and Amy Fleming about her article "Branch to Branch," which appears in the September issue of Voices from the Middle. They discuss the importance of teachers for young adults and the role that grit plays in helping students develop the skills they will need later in life. In addition, Alex Corbitt interviews teacher-author Matt Homrich-Knieling about his article on how he connected the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, to his teaching of Christopher Paul Curtis’s novel Bud, Not Buddy. Beth Shaum joins us again for a new segment of Voices from the Bookshelf where she talks about the graphic novel memoir March. (56:03)
