Appendix: Sentimentality, Revisited

Welcome to our Appendix Season — a chance to look at the Harry Potter series as a whole.

To kick it off, we're revisiting Sentimentality with a deep dive into Beth Driscoll’s book The New Literary Middlebrow! "But middlebrow is not synonymous with sentimentality?!??!" That's right, but by halfway through this episode you'll understand why Hannah had to bring in Driscoll's writing for a broader conversation about the appeal and mainstream success of the Harry Potter series. If you liked our previous episodes on Sentimentality and Eugenics, you'll love this first-ever Appendix Season episode!
