on MPR tomorrow morning

Just a reminder about tomorrow's Minnesota Public Radio talk show program. Chances are, you are fully aware by now of the controversial editorial posted in the Wall Street Journal by Meghan Cox Gurdon, in which she attacked contemporary Young Adult literature, and me and my novel, The Marbury Lens, in particular.

The program will air live, Monday, June 20, between 10 - 11 a.m. in Minnesota (8 - 9 a.m. Pacific Time).

The hyperlink to Minnesota Public Radio's Midmorning Show is listed below.

The current link will play Friday's show, but it will be the correct link for Monday, June 20.

Listeners outside the state of Minnesota will be able to hear the program streamed live on the link.

There will also be a comment box on the link, so listeners can make comments in real time.

Listeners can also Tweet the host, Kerri Miller (her Twitter link is listed below), and may also chime in on Facebook (linked below, as well).

Of course, this is a phone-in show, so listeners are also able to call in to speak with Kerri and me.

The program will run clips of Megan Cox Gurdon's interview on MPR, and the other guest will be Karen MacPherson, YA librarian at Takoma Park Library in Maryland, and columnist for Scripps Howard News Service.

I'm fairly confident that people will be surprised by some of the things they hear tomorrow.
