We're joined again by David Chaffetz, who's a regular contributor to the Asian Review of Books, and the author of Three Asian Divas: Women, Art and Culture In Shiraz, Delhi and Yangzhou. In this interview, the three of us talk about the central role the horse plays in Indian history, and how understanding the horse may help us to understand the power structures of the subcontinent.

In today's Books with Hooks, Carly and CeCe discuss thinking of your query letter as real estate with curb appeal; considering what you're providing for the reader's sake vs what you're providing for the character's sake; being clear with memoir with regards to what you're working towards as a climax; memoir needing to have a sub-genre; immersing a reader in scene instead of giving a round-up of feelings; and the problem with presenting a character just to immediately kill them off.After which Bianca chats with award-winning novelist, Lauren Groff, about avoiding perfectionism; laying the groundwork for inspiration; how dialogue should complicate what's happening on the page and deal with power structures; dealing with characters' emotionality; how historical fiction has the past speak into the present day; how good art is trying to speak as truthfully as possible; how omniscient POV is the most fun you can have; and how fiction is the art of sculpting time through words.

There is a magical age, somewhere between eight and twelve, where young people's wonder at the natural world can be galvanized into meaningful engagement with the threats and challenges that humans bring to bear on nature. It is within this window that the right book at the right time can help a young person make sense of the big feelings that come with adolescence — and with unforeseen hardships, like global pandemics. In this episode, with the help of Sara Pennypacker, author of Pax and Pax, Journey Home, Colby Sharp, literacy advocate and teacher, and Philippe Cousteau, co-author of The Endangereds series, we discuss the serious, real-life challenges that young readers face and how animal characters in books can help them identify and express their feelings of grief, loss, and trauma. To learn more about Sara Pennypacker's or Philippe Cousteau's books, visit harpercollins.com/blogs/authors/sara-pennypacker harpercollins.com/blogs/authors/philippe-cousteau Do you have a story about how a classic book changed your life?

[2:33] The reaction Sara received from a group of fourth-graders after reading a chapter of Pax, led her to make changes to the original text. [4:24] Sara prefers to write about how wounded children attempt to carry on and heal their wounds after trauma. [5:18] A scene in the book, when Peter decides not to return to the therapist, spurs Colby to consider the state of his children post-pandemic. [8:56] Sara describes why Pax is purposefully written to exclude a distinct time or place. [12:07] After interviewing several animals, for Sara, there was no question the character Pax would be a fox. [14:37] Philippe Cousteau describes his book series, The Endangereds and how learning from animals helps children identify with the major environmental crisis we face. [18:17] How writers can introduce young readers to serious, real-world issues. [20:02] Pax's ending left readers with the opportunity to envision their version of what happens to the characters but as questions emerged Sara decided to write the sequel Pax, Journey Home. [29:09] Colby's non-fiction, Gamechanger, addresses the need to get books in the hands and minds of children. Continue Your Journey: Sara Pennypacker Mr. Colby Sharp Philippe Cousteau HarperCollins Remember Reading Podcast @ReadingPod on Twitter Shareables: “There's nothing like a read-aloud on this planet, sharing a book with a bunch of kids in the classroom and having those conversations. And, I believe that kids in my class will remember our reading aloud of Pax for the rest of their life.” — Colby Sharp, literacy advocate and author “'I'm not the writer who writes about the damage happening to kids. As a writer, I'm more interested in what they do afterward. So, I want to be really respectful of kids who have been wounded or have had losses in this way.” — Sara Pennypacker, author, Pax “Passion and excitement and adventure need to be part of any good story. Those are kinds of universal rhetorical truths about storytelling that I drew from when working on The Endangereds. How could we tell stories that could make kids excited, but then also try to give them a little bit of agency?” — Philippe Cousteau, co-author of The Endangereds: Melting Point
