Show Notes

Author Avitus B. Carle lives and writes just on the edge of Philadelphia. She has built a remarkable body of work, creating some of the most memorable characters you're likely to meet. And you can be sure that none of them will go quietly into that good night. We talk about her knack for recreating speech in dialects that were part of her family's legacy, and how having fun in the writing process can lead to producing exceptional stories. We read "The Feeling of Life," which chronicles a portentous moment in the lives of three young boys.
