Shelagh's extended conversation with Meg Tilly

Listen

Meg Tilly knows what it's like to be in the spotlight.  In her twenties, she had roles in major  Hollywood films like "The Big Chill" and "Agnes of God". She took time off from acting to raise her children, but now she's back in the public eye, starring in the television show Bomb Girls.  Meg Tilly channels her experience of fame into her fifth book A Taste of Heaven.

 

A Taste of Heaven is a novel for 8- to 12-year-old readers. When she was touring with her last book, Porcupine, Meg Tilly found that many of the questions she received from young people had to do with fame.  It became clear to Meg that many young people yearned for and glorified it; A Taste of Heaven is her response to that.  It is a cautionary tale of celebrity told through the lives of two pre-teen girls who become best friends.

 Shelagh had a great conversation with Meg Tilly.  We hope you enjoy this extended version.
