mp3:  Listen to this show.

On the first part of today’s show, we’ll talk with children’s author and illustrator Anna Alter.  Alter’s newest book,What Can You Do With An Old Red Shoe?, is a fun romp through creative recycling activites.  We chat about her books and she’ll have some recycling ideas for us — using old shoes and shower curtains and more.  You can visit Alter’s website at annaalter.com.

On the second part of the show, we’ll listen to a piece by contributor Taeyeon Kim.  Kim interviews April Lee of EnoB, a music and arts program for disabled students in New York City’s Korean-American community.  Visit their website at www.enob.org.

Finally, we’ll have a live conversation with Robert Pottinger.  After working in the banking industry for over 15 years, Pottinger decided to change course and become a teacher.  He’s now in his second year of teaching middle school math as a New York City Teaching Fellow.   You can learn more about the New York City Teaching Fellows at www.nycteachingfellows.org.

Our Thanksgiving cornucopia of goodies for you… coming up.
