That is who wrote this amazing dystopian novel. Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale has changed people’s lives. It has inspired resistance. Feminists everywhere have adopted the story to serve as a warning. We hear often that dystopian novels give us a glimpse of the extremes of which our society can resort. In 2018, the surveillance of 1984, technology of Brave New World, and censorship of Fahrenheit 451 have never been more prevalent. However, Atwood’s dystopian novel gives us insight into fears of limited women’s rights, and reproductive rights. This book, however unsettling it may be, is worth the read.
It is adaptation week, and this week we will be discussing the first and second Harry Potter movies. We discuss everything from “Snapemania” to our love for Kenneth Branagh as Lockhart.

Wanna know more about J.K. Rowling? Come listen to us discuss the main lady herself. We also discuss some of her alchemy inspirations for the Sorcerer’s Stone, the Mirror of Erised, all in episode one! In episode 2 we learn about basilisks and phoenixes. Listen, and come join the conversation.
We recorded two books together thinking we would have less to say because they are the shorter novels. We ended up breaking them up anyway because (shocker) we had a lot to say about a novel that was so influential in our lives!
On June 26th, 1997, another female author published a novel that would change our lives. A scribbled napkin turned into a worldwide best seller, after no less than TWELVE publishers turned her down. July will be our first Harry Potter month! Come join the conversation, and help us celebrate J.K. Rowling.
