Disinvitations

Here’s a blog about YA author Ellen Hopkins (Crank, Impulse) being “uninvited” to the 2011 Teen Lit Fest in Humble, Texas. http://petehautman.blogspot.com/2010/08/nasty-thing-in-corner.html

This kind of thing has happened to me, as well – more than one public school has asked me to do a presentation or a program, and then taken back the invitation when they realized what Uncle Bobby’s Wedding is about. (I’ve done some presentations at private schools which were well-received by all).

One author after another has withdrawn from the festival – I suspect this is going to have some major fallout.

Stay strong, everybody!
