Newstalgia Pop Chronicles Special: Maurice Sendak (1928-2012)

Newstalgia Pop Chronicles Special - Maurice Sendak (1928-2012), a remembrance via NPR's Fresh Air Program from earlier today (May 8th).

<strong>Maurice Sendak and Friend - essential reading for surviving childhood.</strong>

It was with sadness that I learned today of the passing of Maurice Sendak, the man who took the concept of Children's books to an entirely new level. His was a unique voice and vision and it will be missed.

I found an episode broadcast earlier today via NPR's Fresh Air program which features a remembrance of Sendak along with excerpts of several of the interviews he did for that program over the years.

If you haven't already heard it - here it is now.

Rest in Peace Maurice Sendak - you made surviving the day-to-day so much more bearable.
