   Rowling discusses the freedom of press0 Comments

J.K. Rowling was awarded the 2016 PEN/Allen Foundation Literary Service Award in America this week.

Upon gaining the Award she spoke about none other than Donald Trump!

  Accio Quote:
Only last year, we saw an online petition to ban Donald Trump from entering the UK. It garnered half a million signatures. Now, I find almost everything that Mr. Trump says objectionable. I consider him offensive and bigoted, but he has my full support to come to my country and be offensive and bigoted there.

About the Award and Rowling's selection:

  Accio Quote:
J.K. Rowling has used her talents and stature as a writer to fight inequality on both a local and global level. Herself the frequent object of censorship in schools and libraries across the globe, as well as online targeting, Rowling has emerged as a vocal proponent of free expression and access to literature and ideas for children, as well as incarcerated people, the learning-disabled, and women and girls worldwide.
