This week on Fangirl Happy Hour, Ana and Renay discuss the huge blow-up in the Young Adult literature community over sexist comments made by author Andrew Smith. Then we chill out by discussing some of the media we’ve loved so far this year, including books, films, and music. Lastly, we read and discuss Rat Queens by Kurtis J. Wiebe, the new fantasy comic being celebrated and highly recommended around the community.
This week on Fangirl Happy Hour, Fangirl Media Vault Edition, Renay and Ana watch and discuss 12 Monkeys, one of Ana’s favorite SF films. Then, we talk about K. Tempest Bradford’s essay inviting people to challenge themselves to read beyond straight white cisgender men for one year, and the response from fandom, which was both fascinating and absurd. Lastly, we read the first nine volumes of One Piece by Eiichiro Oda, Renay’s favorite manga series about pirates and friendship.
