Larry Dane Brimner rocks non-fiction in a lyrical way. Author of more than 150 books for kids, his non-fiction books WE ARE ONE, the story of Bayard Rustin and BIRMINGHAM SUNDAY informed me and affected me at the same time. I would bet that there isn’t a school child anywhere who hasn’t encountered one of Larry’s works. Larry chatted with me and shared with me his writing insights and why he loves fiction as much as non-fiction. He also scared me with his talk of what he would do to zombies with knitting needles.
