Episode 107: Snapdragon by Kat Leyh

Andi and Lise simply LOVE the graphic novel Snapdragon by Kat Leyh (published 2020). The main character is Snapdragon (she goes by Snap), a young girl who ends up befriending the town’s alleged witch. It’s a delightful, layered story about outsiders, found family, and finding magic within yourself. POC rep, queer rep (including great butch lesbian rep FINALLY), feminist rep and storylines that blend seamlessly. Lise and Andi read it several times because the story really resonated with them. Kat Leyh is also one of the creative forces (writer and cover artist) behind the series Lumberjanes, which Andi and Lise discussed way back when in episode 6

Shout-outs: Lise is super-stoked about writing her very first blurb for author Cathy Pegau’s forthcoming release (November!), The Demon Equilibrium, which features kick-ass women and great world-building. The two MCs are demon-hunters and romantic partners as well, but they’ve been separated and must find each other. Andi has started reading the first offering in the latest Star Wars ’verse project, The High Republic. One of the first books is Charles Sproul’s Light of the Jedi. Fun space opera with lots of tension and it’s nice to see the diversity of authors lined up for more of this. High Republic is set 200 years before the Phantom Menace.
