Publisher and Editor Neal Porter (Neal Porter Books / Holiday House) talks to author/illustrator Gianna Marino about her book We Will Live in This Forest Again and how the book was inspired by her experience during and after the 2017 fires in Northern California. They discuss the difficulty of picking an appropriate title, hitting the right balance between hope and realism, and a cliffhanger about a horse stuck in a ranch amidst the wildfires.
