Three Americans, a Canadian and a Brit walk into a bar. But this isn’t a bad joke, this is the Ladies of Valhalla.
In this special episode – and a change to the planned topic – the Ladies are joined by two very special guests; author A. S. King and comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick, to talk about King’s surrealist young adult novel, I Crawl Through It.
This episode contains spoilers for the book, topics that some listeners may find upsetting, and a lot of swearing – you have been warned! Oh, and A.S. King slams a brand new poem, never seen or heard before. Everyone else loses their minds.
Next month, as previously promised, the ladies will be looking at the recent movie adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time, based on the book by Madeline L’Engel. They will also be releasing a special mini-episode to coincide with Halloween, to give you some family-friendly suggestions for spooky entertainment.
