Literature for Young Readers

Host Renee Montagne speaks with two authors whose new stories for young readers are both set against the backdrop of racism and repression. Author Anton Ferreira reads from his book, Zulu Dog, set in South Africa, and author Julia Alvarez reads from Before We Were Free, which she set on an island inspired by the Dominican Republic.
