The Brook Reading Podcast

Aug 26, 2019

Episode 68 of Brook Reading revels in the wonder of fairy tales while I discuss Part 1 of “Sleeping Beauties” by Stephen and Owen King.  My special guest and lady love, Shera, pops by the Brook to discuss HER favorite fable, “Streganonna”, I ask lots of questions about the plot of this novel - I mean, it’s not like I read it, right?? - and rage against the idea of female hysteria and silencing women.
