This is a new feature I hope to make regular, at least for a while — linking back to of my favorite posts from my old blog, The Emerald City Book Review. I recently fixed the problems with my domain name on the archive version of the site, so that all old links should work. Hooray!
So to celebrate, I’m linking to a slightly updated version of a post from Witch Week 2015, which took readers on a tour of Blackstock College, the imaginary college from Pamela Dean’s Tam Lin. Blackstock is based on Carleton College, where Dean and I both went to school, and were students in the English department (though some decades apart). I had a blast creating this post and so I’m always happy to revisit it. And Halloween is the perfect time to do so!
To start your tour, click here to see the post on The Emerald City Book Review Archive. And be sure to head over to Calmgrove for this year’s Witch Week celebration (starting with my guest post on October 31).
