"My father, the reader"
A writer/publisher's take on the changing book world, the fight for libraries and local bookstores, writing for young readers, independent publishing, and more.
His tribute to his father:
"This year's Father's Day is my first without my dad, Peter Wilhelm, who passed away in Florida almost a year ago. He was 85. When I visit schools these days, and young people ask me how I got started writing, I tell them first how I got started reading — and that was because my dad was the best reader I ever knew. "
