Ninety years ago this month, A.A. Milne published his first story about Winnie the Pooh, the much loved children’s book character.

Here & Now celebrates this anniversary by revisiting host Robin Young’s conversation with Lindsay Mattick, who wrote about the bear who inspired Milne in the book, “Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear.”
