You might know Daniel Handler as the award-winning author of A Series of Unfortunate Events, the thirteen-volume sequence he wrote under the pen name, Lemony Snicket. The San Francisco native took time out of his multi-city tour to chat with Just the Right Book Podcast about his latest book, All the Dirty Parts, which details the erotic impulses of a teenage boy.
Roxanne and Daniel cover a range of topics including talking to your kids about sexuality, pornography's contribution to our culture, and how the book has stirred up controversy. "Publishing houses just felt like it was not something that could be presented for young people," says Handler.
And stay tuned after the interview with Daniel for a special sneak peek of books coming out in 2018, straight from the renowned Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, Vermont.
