We’re joined by two veteran high school English teachers, each with a summer reading recommendation for a teenager. We talk about about how speculative fiction (including sci-fi, fantasy, horror, alt. history) engages teenagers in different ways, and why magic gets a bad rap among “literary” readers.
Never Let Me Go Kazuo Ishiguro
A Wizard of Earthsea Ursula K. LeGuin
As promised in the episode, we also have Lindsay’s self-syllabus for this summer of reading, both in image format and in a Notion template for your enjoyment!
