Travis: In 1998, Marla Frazee got an idea for a story. 25 years later, that idea is finally becoming a picture book: In Every Life.
In this episode, we talk about what inspired the book, its winding path to publication, and Marla’s rare feat of earning back-to-back Caldecott Honors in 2009 and 2010.
