Dan Santat, incredibly talented and prolific author and illustrator, joins me for a great talk about his career, art and illustration in general, the power of memoir writing, and how parenting changes us as artists. In every interview I’ve read with Dan doing this research, he’s so honest and thoughtful in his approach to life, and this conversation is no exception. ¬†Inspirational stuff, and an honor to talk to a Caldecott Award winning creator.

Follow Dan on Instagram for great updates (especially his recent stuff on the Covid-19 situation calling on his microbiology degree to demystify what’s going on and help parents and kids talk about it all constructively).

You can find his books here, many of them signed through Vroman’s books!
