August Discussion: The Changeling

We are about to record our 20th episode of the Time to Read podcast. Can you believe it? We can’t either – time sure flies when you’re having a blast recording a podcast!

This month, we will be discussing The Changeling  by Victor LaValle. We would love to hear your thoughts – love it? Hate it? We really, really want to know.

Here are some questions we’ll be contemplating:

  1. The Changeling is a modern fairy tale horror story. What was your favourite fairy tale growing up?
  2. William tells Apollo, “Vampires can’t come into your house unless you invite them. Posting online is like leaving your front door open and telling any creature of the night it can come right in.  Do you agree?
  3. Apollo was obsessed with Maurice Sendak’s book Outside Over There as a child. What was your favourite childhood book that stayed with you (for good or for bad) throughout your life?
  4. In the book Apollo is named after the character in Rocky.  If you were to name your child after a movie character, who would it be?

Comment below or email the team at  We’d love to give you a shout out during our recording but it’s also super cool with us if you’d rather remain anonymous.
