Retellings

This week, we're talking about twice-told tales and retellings. We go from Greek Mythology to Fairy Tales to Shakespearean Plays, and quite a bit of Arthurian Legends, and discuss the ways in which these centuries-old stories are revitalized today, while also talking about amazing contemporary authors like Silvia Moreno-Garcia and graphic novel series like Once & Future.
