Kids Books Feature Famous Figures As Children
Brad Meltzer is known for his political thrillers – his latest is “The President’s Shadow” – but he is also the author of a series of kids books that tell real-life stories of famous people as children.
For example, in “I Am Amelia Earhart,” we learn that when the aviatrix was seven, she built a homemade roller coaster in her backyard. Last June, Here & Now‘s Meghna Chakrabarti spoke with Meltzer, and today we revisit that conversation.
