Funny, She Doesn’t Look Like a Corruptor of Children’s Minds
Posted by: Keir Graff

On AL Focus, Beverly Goldberg talks to Susan Patron about the scrotum flap brouhaha:

Susan Patron’s book “The Higher Power of Lucky” became known for two things in the past year: winning the 2007 ALA Newberry Medal, and being at the center of an uproar when some school librarians removed the book because it contained the word “scrotum.” In this interview, conducted at the 2007 ALA Annual Conference, AL’s Beverly Goldberg speaks with Patron about that controversial word, connecting with young readers, and what she’s working on next.
