Thanks for listening and subscribing to the Clive Barker Podcast. The Only Podcast dedicated to the Imagination of Clive Barker. In this episode, 218, Jose, Ryan and Markus are joined by special guest Peggy O'Leary to talk about Clive's 2002 Young Adult novel, Abarat.  You might remember Peggy O'Leary, the teacher in Kodiak Middle School who taught Abarat to her English class with help from Clive himself. Her class was featured in the companion book, Beneath the Surface of Clive Barker's Abarat. 

Sponsor: Don Bertram’s Celebrate Imagination 

Show Notes: Abarat. 2002, Clive Barker

You're not gonna believe this, but just now I got a Friend request from a former student, which I accepted...and she immediately sent me a message asking the name of "those amazing books we read in your class!! I went to an art show yesterday that instantly reminded me of the incredible art in the books and it drove me nuts I couldn’t remember the name of them. Can you please remind me the name of them?" Of course it's Abarat--how totally crazy is that to have that message come RIGHT NOW??!!
