The Gaithersburg Book Festival happens each May in beautiful, downtown Gaithersburg, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. This year I was invited to interview bestselling YA author Gayle Forman during one of the festival sessions and I'll be sharing that conversation with you in an upcoming episode, but I also recorded a handful of quick pop-up conversations with authors and illustrators as we crossed paths throughout the day. Please enjoy these brief opportunities to catch up with today's guests, Steve Light (BLACK BIRD YELLOW SUN), Sarah Jacoby (FOREVER OR A DAY), Dan Santat (DUDE!, DRAWN TOGETHER), Megan Wagner Lloyd (FORT-BUILDING TIME), Gareth Hinds (POE: STORIES AND POEM), Hena Khan (POWER FORWARD), Ellen Oh (SPIRIT HUNTERS, We Need Diverse Books), Karina Glaser (THE VANDERBEEKERS OF 141st STREET), and Kate Beasley (LIONS & LIARS). You can access even more information about this book and its author illustrator by visiting
