The Brook Reading Podcast

May 23, 2019

This episode is the beginning of a very important set of episodes for Brook Reading, and for me personally.  My favorite book of all time - outside of genres, authors, eras, etc. - is Stephen King’s “IT”. King is one of the authors that brought my friends and I together, and “IT” specifically is one of the special experiences shared by myself and my best friend, Alison.  She joins me on this journey to talk about friendship, coming of age during trying times, feminism, and the importance of having someone on your side who understands you, even when you doubt yourself. We also tie some loose ends from my BUST Extravaganza episode, learn about an amazing new podcast, and I tell Alison about the magic of bullet journaling!


This episode includes:  Movie discussions of “IT” TV Miniseries (1990) and “IT:  Chapter One” (2017), as well as Part One of the novel from Chapters 1 - 3.
