In Memoriam Sid Fleischman
To celebrate the life of Newbery Medal-winning author Sid Fleischman, we are re-broadcasting his interview with Donna Ballman that we first aired some two years ago. Sid was an inspiration for many authors. In addition to writing children’s books, he worked for the Children’s Television Workshop, and also penned numerous screenplays, including Blood Alley (with John Wayne), The Whipping Boy (with George C. Scott) and many others based on his own novels. He was the father of Newbery Medal-winning writer and poet Paul Fleischman – the only father and son pair to receive Newbery awards.[audio:ld/ld_362.mp3]
