Episode 21: BookExpo America and Leverage (plus Fun Home!) Show Notes

Episode here.

This week, Anna reported in on her experience at BEA (aka BookExpo America) and did her worst to booktalk some of the books she learned about in New York City! Then we discussed our first encounter with the show Leverage, and were both very happy about Fun Home–the book and the show.

Next time we will have special guest @amydieg on to talk about Y: The Last Man and other topics!
