New Year, New Intersect Podcast!

Jon_agee_Intersect_Guest_headerIt’s a new year and a new Intersect Podcast! On the first episode of 2013 we are talking to author and illustrator, Jon Agee. Jon teaches us about palindromes, and talks about how he landed in children’s publishing.

Jon Agee went to The Cooper Union School of Art in New York City. While there he took up painting, sculpture, lithography, photography and film making, but what he loved most was sketching out cartoons and comic strips in his spare time. He is the illustrator/author of such books as Ludlow Laughs, the story of a grumpy guy who laughs in his sleep, and The Incredible Painting Of Felix Clousseau. One of the first people to see it and give it the thumb’s up – literally, hot off the press – was Maurice Sendak. However, that was all a long time ago. Since then he’s written several other picture books including “Terrific”, and “My Rhinoceros”, illustrated a few by other authors, and created a series of offbeat wordplay books, beginning with the Book of Palindromes.

Thanks for listening. Please pass this along and subscribe to the Intersect Podcast. Stop by to hear more great interviews with David Shannon, Tony Diterlizzi, Lauren Oliver, and more!
