023: Matt Tavares – Baseball, Apple Pie and Picture Books

Posted by on Mar 25, 2015 in Chatting


Ok so we don’t talk about apple pie in this episode but author and illustrator Matt Tavares and I do mention baseball and picture books. I loved getting to know Matt and his amazing stories. This is a fun honest conversation that I know you’ll enjoy as we get ready for the start of baseball season!

  • Since I refuse to change the title despite not discussing apple pie during the interview, I thought we’d talk about it here.

    As far as pie goes, apple is my favorite. I’m a fan of both the apple filling and the crust. Also the pie should be warm. And there is no need for ice cream with warm pie.
