Airbrushing the Politburo

Pretend stuff never happened... there's a solution...

Laura Ingalls Wilder, the author of the famed Little House on the Prairie books, has had her name removed from a prestigious children’s book award over concerns of her depictions of black and Indigenous Americans.

On Saturday, a division of the American Library Association voted to remove Wilder’s name from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal. The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) voted unanimously to change the name to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award.

History is. Literature is, and should be. Whitewashing is lunacy, and the lunacy continues.

it's like a two year old putting their
fingers in their ears and yelling "nyah,
nyah, nyah"
to shut out news of bedtime.
