By the Book: Celebrating Parents in Literature

With June 1 being the Global Day of Parents, we celebrate good parents in literature (despite their relative rarity!), and talk about how different authors have depicted the lasting impact of good parenting in their stories. Books discussed include A Girl from Yamhill (Beverly Cleary), About a Boy (Nick Hornby), Boy, Snow Bird (Helen Oyeyemi), A Song of Ice and Fire (George R. R. Martin), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Roald Dahl), and The Namesake (Jhumpa Lahiri).

Produced by: Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan

Presented by: Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan
