Episode 16: Steve Kluger

Last Days of Summer

Podcast Overview: In April of 2013, Steve Kluger sat down with the students of THINK Global School to discuss his epistolary novel Last Days of Summer. First published in 1998, Last Days of Summer tells the story of Joey Margolis, a downtrodden and roughed up twelve-year old living in 1940’s Brooklyn. To help deal with the bitter pain of his parents’ divorce, Joey begins corresponding with professional baseball Charlie Banks. This sets the stage for a long-lasting and powerful friendship, told completely through letters, postcards and other assorted documents.

With his exuberant personality on display, Kluger also fields questions from our students and dives into topics that truly excite him, including musicals, baseball and the Japanese-American redress movement.
