Writer/video producer Tom Speicher, author of “A Week With Waffles,” traveled to Wilkes-Barre on Dec. 21 for another appearance on WBRE’s “PA live!” with co-host Rachel Malak. "This book ... teaches kids the days of the week and, at the same time, each page encourages creative thought in kids. I've found a lot of positive feedback from educators and parents, saying about how much they enjoyed because it forces that interaction – it forces kids to think – in a fun way," Speicher told Malak, whose mother winningly read it to her kindergarten class. While the four-minute segment was intended as a gift-giving nudge for last-minute holiday shoppers, the book is available year-round through Amazon and at The Otto Bookstore, 107 W. Fourth St., Williamsport. A portion of each purchase benefits the Penn College's Emergency Scholarship Fund.
