It's a Wise Child

It's a Wise Child

It's a Wise Child is a fictional talk show featured in many of Jerome David Salinger's stories of the Glass family. All of the Glass children were featured in the show, and it is said that the combined income from the show sent the seven children through college [Salinger, J.D. "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters", page 8. Little, Brown and Company, 1962] .
