Fans of young adult (YA) literature should check out the library’s new podcast, Spill Lit. Each episode, YA superfans Katharine and Patty try to convince non-fan Sarah of all the merits of YA books. Hear our takes on different titles, and what we liked and didn’t like about all aspects of each book; from the writing style, to the plot points, and the cover art. Titles from a wide variety of genres are discussed, as well as what elements of a book draw us in (talking animals, found family, romance) and what turns us off (aliens, detectives, serials.)
