Bob Balaban’s Creature From the Seventh Grade
January 3, 2013
Hour 2: From the Think Archive – What makes a character work on the page or on the screen and just how important are those traumatic pre-teen years to a writer and actor’s later creativity? In September we talked with Bob Balaban  who’s appeared in nearly 100 movies – from Midnight Cowboy  to Moonrise Kingdom . His new book is “The Creature From the Seventh Grade: Boy or Beast” (Viking, 2012). It’s the first book in a new series of books for middle grade kids.
