044: Oh My Stars, It’s Bookstrology!

Hey listeners, what's your sign? Your BOOK sign, that is! We took the "Universe of Stories" summer reading theme and astrologified it... or bookstrologified? Either way, check out this episode for a ton of recommendations, even if you're on the cusp!  Show notes: https://lplks.org/blogs/post/044-oh-my-stars-its-bookstrology/ Two Book Minimum: Look How Happy I'm Making You by Polly Rosenwaike A People's History of Heaven by Mathangi Subramanian Deaf Republic: Poems by Ilya Kaminsky (who will be here on Sept 8th!) Our Bodies, Ourselves by the Boston Women's Health Collective (which later inspired Trans Bodies, Trans Selves) BOOKSTROLOGY! WHAAAAT?! This year's Summer Reading theme is "A Universe of Stories," and we decided to go wild with this theme and create 12 Bookstrology signs! Here are some recommendations for each sign. See the show notes for ALL the book links!
