This episode was recorded live at FantasyCon 2022 so the sound is a little echoey
Laura is a games writer, Manga translator and the award-winning author of Sing Your Sadness Deep (2019) among other wonderful things. You can follow her on Twitter here, and find out more at LauraMauro.com
Laura’s choice: Moominland Midwinter by Tove Jansson

We mention Tove Jansson’s biography by Boel Westin
I really love Kate DiCamillo’s work, and John Coxon read Flora & Ulysses for the podcast back in November 2021. You can listen again here.
The trailer of The Tale of Despereaux adapted from Kate DiCamillo here
Laura remembers the Japanese cartoons of the Moomins. I love the German stop motion animations. I mention the Moomins on the Riviera film
