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!
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:
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.
