On Monday, Jack Gantos won the Newbery Medal, the highest award in children's literature, for his novel Dead End in Norvelt. He's also written the Rotten Ralph series for kids, several novels ... oh, and a memoir about the 18 months he spent in a federal penitentiary on drug-smuggling charges. (We don't know if that one had pictures.)
We've invited Gantos to play a game called "Oh, darling! Take me in your arms!" Three questions about Harlequin romance novels.
