Academic Dragons


Bookdragons agree: Fantasy is literature, enjoyable to read and you can explore human issues with it.

If you want to dip your toe or reading glasses in the genre of Fantasy, then our local Bookdragon SandyJ has just the recommendation for you this month. “The Memoirs of Lady Trent” series by Marie Brennan explores not only far off lands with dragons but also the role of women in science and society. So this book is interesting in more then one aspect, plus it also is good for this whole academia aesthetic. And did we mention there are Dragons in it?!?

Other books and Bookdragons are mentioned, too. 1st Stream on Sunday 7PM, drop on Monday noon-ish, oldschool radio broadcast September 14th (our Bookdragons Birthday) 10 a.m. on 104.8, YouTube whenever we get around to it.
