The publication of Charlotte Zolotow’s picture book William’s Doll (1972) not only broke gender stereotypes, but became a landmark moment in American children’s literature.  In a bonus episode of our “Inner Truths: LGBTQ” series, host Dr. Perri Klass speaks with Charlotte’s daughter, Crescent Dragonwagon (a prolific author herself), about the making of William’s Doll and her mother’s cultural impact as a writer and editor of books that have encouraged tolerance, kindness, and authenticity for generations of children.
