I have often heard you and Scott Simon reading children’s books on NPR. Several weeks ago I sent “DiddleBug, A True Story” (more or less) to you and Scott at NPR, written by myself and my 2 yr old granddaughter. I thought you’d enjoy it; perhaps even choose to read it on the air. I feel like Snoopy (“It was a Dark and Stormy Night. . .”) waiting to hear from his publisher. Please, at least tell me that you threw it in the trash!”
Didn't trash it, never saw it. Probably Scott didn't either. Lots of mail gets swallowed up--busy place. We only read published books on the program, for no particular reason--but it would involve meetings and decisions and all like that were we to change anything. Still, someone should have thanked you for sending your story in. So....thank you.
