This short podcast is part of the Meet Me at the Corner series. The host of the video is a young girl who reviews an award winning book called, Al Capone Does My Shirts. The podcast includes a virtual field trip to Alcatraz, where the narrator of the book moves when her family finds employment there. The story is told from her point of view which is bound to grab a young reader’s attention. This short video is just a snippet of the story, but builds background information for the setting of the book.
