Episode 8 Show Notes: Revisiting and Sequels

In this episode, we dive deeper into the topic of re-reading, re-watching, and otherwise revisiting pop culture, which led naturally into the question of sequels–thanks, @younglibrarian!–only a few of which are more popular than the original properties!

Come and read Stephen King’s It with us!
