Pencils — maybe you haven't given much thought to them. Maybe you just picked one up when you needed it, sharpened it and started writing.
Madeleine talks with a man who's spent a lot of time thinking about pencils. In fact, he's a professional pencil sharpener.
Former political cartoonist David Rees joins the show to share his expertise. He's written a treatise called, "How to Sharpen Pencils."
Rees will be at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend, as part of a "DIY Revolution" panel. He'll also be appearing alongside Paul F. Tompkins at the Largo at Coronet, for his book release.
