Meeting Francisco

Sonja_francisco Sonja and I were lucky enough to meet and interview author Francisco X. Stork on Friday. He's the author of Marcelo in the Real World. It's a really touching book about a teen who has Asberger's Syndrome and is sent to work in the mailroom of his father's law firm one summer. Marcelo sees the world in a very unusual way -- not unlike his author who had all kinds of interesting things to say about his creative process, as well as his youth in Mexico. 

It will be a few weeks until you can see the video here. But, in the meantime, get to know Mr. Stork by reading his journal.
