Like Son, Like Father...

Turns out I'm not the only author in the Willems clan. My father, the potter Casey Willems, has just published a YA/chapter book volume entitled On the Run about a young boy in WWII Holland. The boy's experiences are much like my father's, with the exception that this boy rescues an American pilot from behind Nazi lines to freedom!

If you're in New Orleans tomorrow, you can hear him discuss the book and his own wartime experiences at the World War II Museum at 1pm.
