Beschrijving uitgever

Singer Vernel Bagneris and writer Gary Paulsen on this edition of Fresh Air. Vernel Bagneris wrote, directed and starred in the 1979 hit show, "One mo' Time." It's being revived and opens on Broadway this week at the Longacre Theater. The setting is a hot, sultry night at New Orleans' Lyric Theatre in the 1920s. Bagneris performs Charlestons, rags, cakewalks, and other songs of the Vaudeville age, including "There'll Be a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight," "Down in Honky Tonk Town," and "Everybody Loves My Baby." Gary Paulsen is a prolific writer of children's books. He began writing over thirty years ago, when he was coming to terms with his alcoholism. For many years he and his wife lived in poverty in rural Minnesota. This changed when Paulsen won the Newbery Award for children's fiction in 1985 with Dogsong, about running the Iditarod. The famed Alaskan dog race Is going on right now. Paulsen won two subsequent awards during the next three years. Paulsen's children's books often deal with adventurous youths who triumph over adversity in the wilderness.(Original broadcast date: June 21, 2000 and October 6, 1992)
