So, I just read an article that the "Kansas Senate passes bill easing prosecution of teachers for distributing 'harmful material'." It is intended to be protecting kids from "pornographic material," but educators in Kansas attest that this is because of a sex-ed poster in a classroom. And now, senators are calling books by Toni Morrison "pornographic." I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.
What are your thoughts?

Have you heard!? It was just recently announced that there will be a new Veronica Roth duology. As I am sure you are aware, Veronica Roth is the author behind the hugely popular Divergent trilogy. The new two-book set is to be released in 2017 and 2018. According to The Guardian the new books are going to be Star Wars-ish. I don't even know what that could realistically mean for her books, but I am excited regardless.
What do you think? Which author do you wish would come out with something new?
