BSG #47: We're Not Okay / Survivor Song

Escape the real pandemic with a fictional outbreak as we discuss Survivor Song by Paul Tremblay! We talk about how the novel’s events relate to current events, how the main characters are used to tell the story, and whether or not this is a zombie narrative. Next, we get into some listener feedback on The Vanishing Half and catch up with what’s on the #BookSquadBlog, including Bachelorette recaps and Emily’s Spooktober series. For our next #Othersode on 11/16, we’re covering Lovecraft Country, so catch up on HBO! And read along for our next #Bookpisode on Docile by Kevin Szpara (11/30). Send feedback to thesquad@booksquadgoals.com, and don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe!
