Children’s literature made the headlines in a few interesting ways over the past week.
First came news that musician Lil Nas X, known for last year’s smash hit “Old Town Road,” is releasing a children’s book.
C is for Country comes out January 5.
A book you won’t find on certain shelves, though? Books from J.K. Rowling and her pen name, Robert Galbraith.
Newsweek reports that the Australian bookstore Rabble Books & Games will no longer stock new titles and will phase out existing ones — yes, that includes Harry Potter — because of the author’s controversial comments about transgender people.
Profits from the sale of the existing Rowling/Galbraith stock will be donated to TransFolk of Western Australia.
