Hey Suzanne, thanks so much for your interest in TOB! It already looks like you are exactly the kind of mind we are looking for in terms of connecting the ways characters are portrayed to broader debates. TOB is, however, book-focused. I love your idea and very much look forward to reading your review, but without a book it’s perhaps not a good fit for TOB.

If you’ve any other ideas for reviews which involve books, I’d love to hear them. You can email me directly at theopenbookshelf@gmail.com with your pitch!
