Episode 189: Shadowshaper

$10.58

Daniel José Older's novel Shadowshaper is the story of Sierra Santiago, a young woman with the power to infuse art with spirits and save her community from destruction. Set in Older's modern, magical Brooklyn, Shadowshaper shows us the supernatural power of heritage while also tackling subjects like gentrification, cultural tourism, and young love.

Of course, we find time to riff on nighttime salsa, bone moes, and Harold and the Purple Crayon. Enjoy!
