If I knew how to persuade or influence publishers there would be several more decent books in the world, and I would be totally happy. I am just waiting for them to be replaced by something better. Speaking of which, even as you read this, Evan will probably have begun posting where and when you can hear Chinwag Theater on the web! As to telling your local radio station: It comes from Michigan Radio. It is free and without charge. Around 70 stations carry it, and virtually none have dropped it. Listeners like it. And you should get two friends to tell the station to carry it, and those two friends should ask two friends apiece to ask for it, and those friends, etc., etc.
And I love children's librarians.
