Episode 22: Sit-ups Suck (and Other Stories)

May 2022

It Came From the Second Floor

This time, Library teens are talking about a debate happening in almost every Language Arts classroom, recommending some great film, telling us about an 80s supergroup featuring some awesome stars, diving into a duology by author Kristin Hannah, and being nostalgic over some children's books.


Part 1: Graphic Novels?

Catherine will be talking about a slightly controversial topic when it comes to Language Arts classes in schools. Graphic novels in novel studies... yay or nay? Recommendations include Rainatel Gemeier, Cece Bell, and Mariah Marsden.

Part 2: Films of the Week

Kian gives us two movie recommendations by Stanley Kubrick and Thomas Vinterberg he's watched recently and explains the meanings he's found in them. 

Part 3: The Travelling Wilburys

Bran will be introducing us to her favourite supergroup and giving us some awesome song recommendations from these 80s artists.

Part 4: Firefly Lane + Sequel

Callie will be talking about Firefly Lane and Fly Away, a duology by one of her favourite authors, Kristin Hannah. She gives us a quick synopsis and explains why these books mean so much to her.

Part 5: Children's Books & More

Prepare to feel some nostalgia as Bran and Catherine discuss some children's books from their elementary school days, such as books by Robert Munsch and the Geronimo/Thea Stilton series.
