NYSWI Presents NPR's Scott Simon With New Book "Sunnyside Plaza"

Book cover for "Sunnyside Plaza"

Scott Simon, beloved host of NPR’s “Weekend Edition” since it first aired in 1985, and one of the best-known voices on American radio, will present his new middle grade book, "Sunnyside Plaza" in an event presented by New York State Writers Institute at UAlbany's Page Hall on March 10 at 7:30 p.m.

The book tells the story of a developmentally disabled adult woman who seeks to solve the mystery of a number of suspicious deaths in her group home.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
