Books brawl breaks out online

The other day I noticed a bit of controversy growing online after Vancouver writer Raziel Reid’s book Everything Feels Like the Movies was announced as a contestant for the 2015 Canada Reads. National Post columnist Barbara Kay attacked the book for being void of values, and a petition was launched asking the Canada Council to rescind the book’s 2014 Governor General’s award for children’s literature. Vancouver writer and international bestseller Steven Galloway stepped into the fray, and things started to get heated, so I decided to write about it.

Then things got crazy.
