Production Stills - Introducing our Interviewees, Part 2!

Comment

Dear Kickstarters, 

Second round of introductions to our wonderful interviewees (more pics/info on our blog and facebook)!

- All the best from the crew

David Hyde Pierce, actor, who among his many achievements, was the voice for the audio book of The Phantom Tollbooth. We talked about his father’s tendency for punning, and got to hear some hilarious voices as he read excerpts for us. More Pics Here...

Adam Gopnik, writer and critic, who wrote the great New Yorker piece on The Phantom Tollbooth last fall, Broken Kingdom, We talked about the art of children’s literature, Liberal Arts, and why Rhyme and Reason are sexy. More Pics Here...

Bill Harley, storyteller and songwriter, the rare adult who really understands kids and makes great songs and stories to prove it. More Pics Here...

Leonard S Marcus, children's book historian, who wrote the Annotated Phantom Tollbooth. He helped us to contextualize The Phantom Tollbooth and locate it in Brooklyn Heights in the late 1950s and early 1960s.  A wealth of knolwedge!

Jules Feiffer, a man who needs little introduction from us! The illustrator of The Phantom Tollbooth and Pulitzer Prize Winning Cartoonist who shares his wit, warmth and satire from everything from the cold war to hitchhiking across the country to his long friendship with Norton Juster.
