EP 47 Teaching Tough Topics: Interview with author Shari Green

By Alanna King

Alanna is joined by Shari Green, author of Macy McMillan and the Rainbow Goddess, and middle grade educator Lisa Lewis to discuss how this book works to help talk about disability, ageism, and blended families. Lisa has a chance to bring in the students’ own questions for Shari especially about Macy’s confrontations with her soon-to-be stepfather, Alan. We talk about how this rich book opens up conversations with students to help them find truth and make a difference despite the odds.
