Welcome Hudson Valley to this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations.

This week’s guest is Nick Bruel, author and illustrator of the children’s book series Bad Kitty. The Poughkeepsie Public Library District will be holding a book fair on April 1st, and Nick Bruel will be one of the featured authors at the event. On this episode, we talk about the legacy of the Bad Kitty series, his inspiration and process, and the importance of local book festivals like these.

We invite you to join us, and listen to a previously recorded conversation between Nick Bruel and myself here on In Touch.
