By the Book: What is Canon?

By the Book: What is Canon?

This week we venture into the tricky waters of canon - how do we feel when authors revisit their works and worlds, and make changes? Are we able to accept that some of our favourite characters might adapt and have hidden histories? We discuss all this and more, invoking Harry Potter and queerness, and posthumous changes to Atticus Finch.


Produced by: Lee Chwi Lynn & Sharmilla Ganesan
