Bookstore Owners: Cancel the Book Signing with LGBT Hate Crime Denier, Stephen Jiminez
Over 1,000 Signatures!!
Oct 11, 2013 — Thank you all for your support. We've reached over 1,000 signers and managed to get the notice of Publishers Weekly.
None of the bookstores hosting Jiminez have canceled appearances, but hopefully the 1,000+ signers of this petition will let their local bookstores know that unless a book is labeled fiction, you expect it to be the truth.
It's sad to me that a dying industry I turned to so frequently as a student is engaging in giving platforms to snake oil salesmen to get people to walk in the door. For me, I'll be ordering my books off Amazon instead of ever walking into Politics & Prose from now on and I hope you'll do the same.
Thank you again for your support,
