After an enthusiatic start, life got in the way of blogging. Finally a free moment. Listening to Elizabeth MacLeod being interviewed on CBC right now about her new book, The Kids Book of Great Canadian Women, by Kids Can Press. Yeah, Liz! Always delighted to hear children's writers on the radio (and especially nice that it's my publisher, too).

In the latest issue of KNOW, I interviewed a wonderful photographer from Boston, Felice Frankel. She works with scientists to take photographs (or micrographs) of their work. They really are quite stunning and she was a wonderful person to interview. So enthusiastic and keen about her work and about sharing the wonders and beauty of science with others. If you have a moment I highly recommend you check out an online tour (podcast with visuals) of one of her shows, or a profile with photographs. Who knew that a drop of oil or a colony of yeast could be so lovely!
