Today's podcast 05/15/2014

  • Derek Lamb is eleven years old, likes superheroes, Saturday morning cartoons and Chocolate Ka Blams. For a long time, his father has been in Afghanistan piloting Apache helicopters for the US Army. On this latest deployment, it has been more than eight months since Derek’s Dad has been home. The letters they write to each other, ninety-one letters to date, serve to bridge the gap between them. Along with his Dad serving in a war zone, Derek has to endure the taunting of Budgie, a boy who once was his best friend. Will a new friend and the distraction of the school play help Derek cope at school and carry the burdens at home? Read this dramatic and often humorous story of “The Saturday Boy”. (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Book Award nominee, 2015)
