Stephanie Kain: Alternative Families

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Author and English professor Stephanie Kain wanted to see more positive portrayals of gay and lesbians in children's books to read to her daughter Emyln. So, she decided to write her own under the pen name Steff F. Kneff, and the series "Emlyn and the Gremlin" was born. She joins Piya Chattopadhyay to discuss how the normalization of alternative families in children's literature can play a role in changing people's attitudes.
