Show Notes

“Now that you are a Leopard Person, know that your world has just become more real. Creatures are real. Ghosts, witches, demons, shape-shifters, and masquerades, all real.”

Grab your juju knife and sneak out to book club for “Akata Witch” by Nnedi Okorafor, a magical YA afrofantasy adventure. Aurelien and Catrina geek out about libraries, groan about totally realistic terrible teen decisions, debate the merits of having an emotionally-dependant wasp, and fangirl about Sunny, the rule-following, good-question-asking, critical-thinking tween witch you’ll want to be friends with.
