LOU BERGER CHILDREN’S AUTHOR VISIT


It was an honor to be chosen by Lou Berger, former head writer of Sesame Street and winner of ten Emmy awards, as the venue for his author talk. He offered that it is his way of giving back to Martha’s Vineyard for 30 years of happy summer memories his family had on the island, where he wrote hundreds of scripts for Sesame Street, Reading Rainbow and Between the Lions.

He read his lovely children’s book, The Elephant Wish, and discussed writing and his experiences with Sesame Street. Both children and adults asked wonderful questions that led to compelling stories. He even told of when he named Abby Cadabby!
