Nerdette Book Club: ‘The Space Between Worlds’

Welcome to the Nerdette Book Club! Each month, we read a book and chat about it with a rotating group of panelists. This month’s pick is The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson.

In a lot of ways, this book is a classic, action-packed sci-fi novel about a multiverse. But as our panelists explain, Johnson skillfully twists a lot of archetypical tropes into something wholly unique.

Listen along as Nerdette host Greta Johnsen discusses the book with Ramtin Arablouei, co-host of NPR’s Throughline podcast, and Northwestern University journalism lecturer Arionne Nettles. We also hear from many of you!
