#5: The Giver
Lois Lowry’s The Giver is one kick-ass piece of uptopian/dystopia fiction, but no one ever assigned it to Jess and Lauren. Weird. Join our hosts as they discuss the pros and cons of living in a kinda-cult, why you shouldn’t release babies into the wild, and the injustice of not being able to name one’s own (Cabbage Patch) child. —-more—- Like us on FB, follow us on Twitter and Insta and check out The Great Gatsby by F.

#3: To Kill a Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee might just be a perfect book, but that doesn’t mean Lauren and Jessica don’t have opinions about it! This week, we talk about our favorite/least favorite citizens of Maycomb, discuss the origins of the phrase “Hey Boo,” and turn our noses up at ill-conceived sequels.
#2: The Lottery
Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery is one of the most famous (and messed up) short stories of all time, so it seemed like a perfect way for Lauren and Jessica to kick off the new year of their new podcast. Grab a copy of the book and join your hosts to talk weird wedding themes, stone-throwing strategy and the great state of Vermont.
