Winter, White and Wicked by Shannon Dittemore | Episode 1

Summary & Analysis

In this episode, I read a few pages from Shannon Dittemore’s WINTER, WHITE AND WICKED, provide a summary of the book, and do some analysis of the rural place of the novel. Specifically, I think about how themes of faith/religion, race and history, and economic systems in the novel connect to our own, and the possibilities that exist for rural fantasy books to connect to our own world in critical discussions about those themes.

It was a perfect icy, cold day in Texas to do it, too.
