Rebel Heart Talks Books: Art VS Artist

Rebel Heart Books welcomes you to our very first session of "Rebel Heart Talks Books" our forum for discussing current issues as they relate to our daily lives as readers and booksellers.

For this meeting, we will be discussing the challenges of separating art from artist. Following a wave of #MeToo announcements that rocked the book world, we were faced with a dilemma: should we remove the books created by these problematic authors from the shelves or not? Removing titles from shelves amounts to a type of censorship abhorred in the literature community, but selling their books amounts to supporting behavior that itself is abhorrent.

We are eager to discuss the question with our community and hope you will join us! 

Authors we will discuss include: Sherman Alexie, James Dashner, and Matthew Weiner.
