February 12, 2018: We can be heroes. Host Emma Breacain speaks with children’s book author Dr. Madeleine Sherak.

superheroesLook, we don’t want to spoil the ending to the first book in the new Superheroes Club series. We’ll just say that it’s about some kids who manage to perform deeds that are both legitimately heroic, and attainable for the kids reading about them. Ta-da!

Dr. Madeleine Sherak enjoyed her own early school experiences before growing up to spend many years working in education administration as well as teaching math. Some of us may be surprised to learn that the modern education system has grown past the dread “Three R’s,” (reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmatic) to encompass lessons about empathy and inclusivity, and the superhero kids in Sherak’s book bring these values home.

In this conversation, Sherak talks about developing the Superheroes Club and sharing them with her three children and ten grandchildren.
