Frances O’Roark Dowell writes books for young adults. But she forgoes wizards and vampires in favor of very real themes. Her new book, “The Second Life of Abigail Walker” (Simon and Schuster/ 2012), address childhood obesity and bullying. She joins host Frank Stasio to speak about writing for younger audiences.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
Shawn Wen joined the staff of The State of Things in March 2012 and served as associate producer until February 2014.
