For this month’s book club, fellow BFMer and Potterhead Dhanya Nair joins us to discuss J.K. Rowling’s official return to the world of children’s stories, with her free online serialised novel, The Ickabog. Expect plenty of excitement as we dissect the fairy tale that nevertheless displays some unexpectedly dark plot turns, and decide whether Rowling manages to weave her signature magic. In Footnotes, we return to the real world to discuss Rowling’s recent online controversies, and how they have affected the relationship her fans have with her.
