On January 14, 2016, RES fourth graders were interviewed by Vermont Public Radio reporter Amy Kolb Noyes for the VPR radio program Dorothy’s List. Dorothy’s List is a monthly show about the children’s books nominated for the Dorothy Canfield Fisher award, Vermont’s children’s choice book award.
Every month Dorothy’s List features a different title, and RES scholars were interviewed for the February program about El Deafo, an award-winning book written and illustrated by Cece Bell. Ms. Noyes interviewed our scholars as they discussed El Deafo, and she also recorded the fourth graders’ questions for the author. The radio show will air on VPR on February 1, during Vermont Edition at 12 noon and 7 pm. It will also be available on the Dorothy’s List podcast the afternoon of February 1. We are very grateful to VPR and Dorothy’s List for choosing RES to represent Vermont student readers!
