You might know S.D. Smith as the author of the Green Ember series of books. He also happens to be hilarious - which makes this episode so much fun!

At all five Great Homeschool Conventions in 2018, Sarah Mackenzie interviewed S.D. Smith live on stage. At one point, he flipped the whole thing on its head and interviewed Sarah. Hilarity ensued, and somehow they even managed to have a bit of serious conversation.

Plus a secret is revealed: Did you know that S.D. named a character in his books after Sarah?

You get to hear the whole thing on today's episode of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast. You'll hear:

what it really means to write for children
why the Read-Aloud Revival changed the name of its tagline
what happened when Sarah met her "other favorite author" (scroll down for the photo that goes with that story!)

This one is great for the whole family - you don't want to miss it!
