Witches, wizards, and wands--oh my! Fantasy literature can be some pretty murky waters for teachers and parents, but who better to help us navigate these seas than Andrew Pudewa, the head of the Institute for Excellence in Writing and the godfather of CenterForLit? Andrew is not only a very dear friend of ours, but is pretty much the reason we exist in the first place. We had such a wonderful time talking to him about this sticky but also fascinating subject, and as usual he left us with plenty of things to think about.
