Slow Moe ft. Deborah Kerbel

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Toronto-based author Deborah Kerbel writes for all ages: children, middle grade and young adult. She has two books coming out this fall and we met up to talk about Slow Moe, a picture book being released on October 13.
