#249 - Squire by Nadia Shammas & Sara Alfageeh

On this episode, we discuss our November 2023 book club pick, Squire by Nadia Shammas & Sara Alfageeh, a graphic novel about a girl who belongs to a conquered group of a great empire, who sees an opportunity to rise above her station when an opportunity arises to become a squire in service to the imperial army. However, along the way she begins to realize that maybe there's no glory to be found after all in the practice of empire.
