Welcome to the 48th episode of “This One’s Dedicated to…,” recorded live and in person at the 2022 Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival!

In this episode, Jennifer Ziegler and I share our quick conversation with author (and physician!) Rajani LaRocca about the dedication she wrote for her nonfiction picture book The Secret Code Inside You: All About Your DNA (illustrated by Steven Salerno; Little Bee Books, September 2021).

Subscribers to my monthly Bartography Express newsletter (folks can sign up here) are eligible for one of four giveaway copies of The Secret Code Inside You.

If you’d like to be one of the winners, either say so in the comments below or email me directly by the end of the day on December 14, and you’ll be in the running. (U.S. mailing addresses only.)

Thanks for watching, and please visit the main “This One’s Dedicated to…” page for more of our conversations about dedications.
