In this episode, I chat with author Jane Yolen about her new book, The Scarlet Circus, short stories, and romance!
Jane Yolen’s books and stories and poems have won the Caldecott Medal, two Nebula Awards, two Christopher Medals, three World Fantasy Awards, three Mythopoeic Fantasy Awards, two Golden Kite Awards, the Jewish Book Award and the Massachusetts Center for the Book award. She has also won the World Fantasy Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the Science Fiction Writers of America’s Grand Master Award, the Sydney Taylor Body of Work Award, and the Science Fiction Poetry Associations Grand Master Award (the three together she calls the Trifecta). Plus she has won the Association of Jewish Libraries Award and the Catholic Libraries Medal—the DuGrummond Medal, the Kerlan Award, and the Ann Izard story-telling award at least thrice. Six colleges and universities have given her honorary doctorates for her body of work which includes more than 400 books for children and adults.
