Book Banning with Salem West and John Copenhaver (QR Bonus 009)

July 3, 2023

Every so often, Kris and Tara put out a call for questions on Twitter. Late this spring, publisher and author Salem West asked about one of the most important topics in queer media: the rise of legislation aimed at criminalising LGBTQ+ books.

So, of course they invited Salem to join them, along with John Copenhaver, author of the crime novels Dodging and Burning and The Savage Kind. Together, the four discuss the history of book bannings, the different effects felt by large and independent publishers, and how we can all push back against this tide of discrimination.
