Author Interview: Caren Stelson, author of A Bowl Full of Peace and Sachiko
Today we are joined by author Caren Stelson who tells the inspiring story of Sachiko Yasui for different age groups in Sachiko: A Nagasaki Bomb Survivor's Story (2016 book for middle grade and up) and A Bowl Full of Peace: A True Story (picture book, out today!). Both books share the amazing story of Sachiko Yasui, a six-year-old girl who was half a mile from the atomic bomb that was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945, 75 years ago this week. Caren adeptly connects Sachiko's story to what children are experiencing today in the COVID-19 pandemic, and Sachiko's story helps share an important story of resiliency for children and young adults in difficult times.
