Padma talks about voice, her middle grade novel, "The Bridge
Home", and how she drew from her own childhood experiences to
connect readers to a message that is not only about support for our
families, but how they can also be created.
About the Podcast
The Highlights Foundation's mission is to improve the quality of children's literature by offering intimate and inspiring workshops for authors and illustrators. This podcast was created for those who not only have a passion for stories created for children and young adult audiences, but also for those who want to improve their craft.
The following podcasts consist of interviews with kidlit authors and illustrators sharing tips, tricks, and ideas for working on the craft of story creating. Interviews are conducted on the Highlights Foundation Retreat Center.
