In Robert Munsch's first interview in a decade, he talks candidly about being diagnosed with dementia and about his life in stories. We listen to excerpts of his bestselling children's books "Love You Forever" from AudioFile and Firefly Books and "Mud Puddle" published by Annick Press. Robert reveals the inspiration and meaning behind these stories and more. Also, on today's show, Miriam Toews on her new novel, “Fight Night." She returns to themes that have been at the heart of all of her work: the crushing effect of mental illness, the patriarchal attitudes embedded in fundamentalist religion and -- above all -- the strength that comes from close family bonds
