This month, we have Leigh Bardugo, author of Shadow and Bone, on the show. If you love fantasy, you're going to love this book! With its Russian-inspired setting and vivid characters, we found it spellbinding.
We had so much fun sitting down to chat with Leigh at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena. She told us about the fascinating way she developed the language in the book, the scientific aspects of the magic system, and we addressed the all-important topic of CAKE.
