The City We Became Part 1: Who Is New York Anyway?

Bookshelf Remix

30-08-2021 • 54 mins

Élaina and Sophia find a book they disagree about! In a debate between a New Yorker and a non-New Yorker about a plot that revolves around the incarnation of New York, these two nerds bring out their respective expertise to discuss N.K. Jemisin’s “The City We Became”.

The hosts also acknowledge their status as settlers on Lenapehoking and other unceded Indigenous lands and encourage you to learn more about the Lenape Center and to donate to their cause if you can.
