Mar 8, 2022

Nalo Hopkinson’s “The Easthound” tells the story of twins, Millie and Jolly, as they navigate the dangers of a post-apocalyptic world. A pandemic has taken most of the adults, and now, the children must fend for themselves. There’s danger of starvation and disease, but there is also danger in simply growing up. Millie and Jolly cannot stay children forever, and this story is about how they deal with pending adulthood and what that means in this new world.
