Buried Under Books

The passage of HB2 in North Carolina is causing a great deal of concern in many quarters, rightfully so because there’s a lot that’s wrong with it, but reactions have not always been well thought out, in my opinion. I normally don’t use Buried Under Books as a forum for political issues but this goes beyond politics because bookstores are being treated unfairly when they’ve done nothing I’m aware of to warrant it. If you don’t agree, that’s OK; if you do, please let your local or not-so-local bookstores know you support them in any way you can. Better yet, please encourage any author you know to visit a bookshop in North Carolina.
