Head of research and projects at Tall Tales and host of All Things Considered Amelia Cullen joins us to talk about the forbidden book, V.C. Andrews’ Flowers In The Attic. We talk about reading things you’re not supposed to read, try to grapple with why the book has had such a grip on generations of teenage girls, and try to figure out how we should feel about Flowers In The Attic in 2021.
