I think this could start a new genre: the surprise TED talk. Lunch Lady creator Jarrett J. Krosoczka was asked to fill in at a recent TEDx event. The event started in four hours. Mr. Krosoczka more than filled in on short notice – he delivered a talk about his life and work that was funny, touching, and inspiring.
I think my favorite part is young Jarrett’s brief, but meaningful interaction with children’s lit legend Jack Gantos.
