Did you know that Shel Silverstein, author of The Giving Tree, Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic was a regular at the Playboy mansion? That he was the go to guy for musicians like Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash?

I didn’t. Read more about it in my interview with Lisa Rogak, author of A Boy Named Shel: The Life and Times of Shel Silverstein over at my “Down the Shore with Jen” blog.

If you’re just tuning in, I wrote a book about the South Jersey shore (it’s being published in May 2008). I also blog about the shore, so every Monday, I run a Q&A with a person of note who also happens to have a connection to the South Jersey shore.

Most of the people I’ve interviewed so far have been authors, both because of my connections in publishing and because so many have reached out to me, asking to be part of the series. So check it out!
