Writer and artist Art Spiegelman is the Pulitzer-prize-winning author of "MAUS." His wife, Francoise Mouly, is art director of The New Yorker Magazine. Together, they have produced a collection of classic and original children’s stories, illustrated by some of today’s leading comics artists. They join Diane to talk about the role the two of them have played in the evolution of comics, by taking a form of children’s entertainment, turning it into an avant-garde art form, and now returning it to a new generation of young readers.
