It warms our hearts when we have the chance to spend an afternoon in person with our authors! Marc Harshman, author of One Big Family (coming Spring 2016) and poet laureate of West Virginia, agreed to be our guest on this week’s episode of Coffee Break with EBYR when he was in town recently. Take a peek into his life as a writer: learn how he became one, and hear his advice for others who want to do the same.

If you have more questions for Marc, let us know in the comments or on Twitter. Keep an eye out tomorrow — our great conversation with Marc was so long, we’ll be posting bonus footage! Be sure to check out previous episodes of “A Day in the Life” (or {DitL}) on EBYR TV, and don’t forget to subscribe!
