Jarrett J. Krosoczka is the New York Times-bestselling author/illustrator behind more than forty books for young readers, including his wildly popular Lunch Lady graphic novels, select volumes of the Star Wars™: Jedi Academy series, and Hey, Kiddo, which was a National Book Award Finalist. Krosoczka creates books with humor, heart, and deep respect for his young readers—qualities that have made his titles perennial favorites on the bookshelves of homes, libraries, and bookstores. In addition to his work in print, Krosoczka produced, directed, and performed in the audiobook adaptation of his graphic memoir, which garnered both Audie and Odyssey Awards for excellence in audiobook production. Krosoczka has been a guest on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross and has delivered two TED Talks, which have collectively accrued more than two million views online. Young creatives can also hear Krosoczka weekly on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live and catch his wildly popular web show on YouTube, Draw Every Day with JJK. He also acted as a consultant and appeared in live segments of Creative Galaxy on Prime Video.

Jarrett and I discussed his first forays into art, the overwhelmingly personal memoir "Hey, Kiddo", and his current YouTube series "Draw Every Day" among other topics. Jarrett realizes his work, and his words, can inspire people of all ages and seeks to use his incredible talent to make the world a better place. His focus on empowering children fits right into the core focus of The DTALKS Podcast: to make the world a more inclusive place for all! Thanks for coming on the show Jarrett, we can't wait to have you on again!
