Looking for Authors to Avoid?

By now you may (should) have heard about Lionel Shriver's pro-cultural-appropriation keynote speech at the Brisbane Writers Festival. The transcript has been published on...The Guardian, maybe?

Anyhoo, yesterday author Kathryn Purdie took to her Facebook to agree with Shriver. Some other authors joined in. Then an author took to Twitter to defend his problematic friend Purdie.

Screenshots at justinaireland's Twitter. (The Facebook link isn't public, or may have been deleted entirely.)

Saved you a click: Kathryn Purdie, Lehua Parker, Jeff Giles, Melanie Jacobson, Jeff Zentner.
