“One of the ways you make magic work is by believing it’s going to work.” Readers love Naomi Novik’s series set at the mysterious (and deadly) Scholomance. Volume two, The Last Graduate, has just landed, and our favorite prickly heroine Galadriel (El) is back, along with her gang of friends, and, of course, Orion Lake, who El might just hate a little less these days. Naomi Novik joins on the show for a spoiler-free conversation about worldbuilding, El’s evolution, Ursula Leguin’s story The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas, and more. Featured books: The Last Graduate and A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik. Produced and hosted by Miwa Messer and engineered by Harry Liang. Follow us here for new episodes Tuesdays and Thursdays.

A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik

Sweet Sweet Fantasy

After taking a longer than expected quarantine break, we're back!  Isolation has taken its toll and we're a little older and a little weirder.  But that's why you're here, right?  The book that brought the band back together is an incredibly fresh take on the magical coming of age trope.  We talk wizarding school, future of YA, grumpy heroines, and more!
