Today’s Video Break
Posted by: Mary Burkey

Jack Gantos talks about his Printz Honor memoir Hole in My Life & one of the best audiobooks ever. Read more from Gantos in my interview in this Audiobooker post, where he discusses the power of audiobooks and the need for books that speak to guy readers. I was so honored that Jack wrote a personal reflection for my book Audiobooks for Youth: A Practical Guide to Sound Literature - he is one of the most inspiring advocates for children’s and young adult literacy & audiobooks. I’d love to start a grassroots movement to have Gantos named as National Ambassador of Children’s Literature!

    I concur with you on the nomination for National Ambassador of Children’s Literature. We attended Jack’s presentation at the the National Book Festival in Washington DC in 2011. He was awesome!
