Rejection 11

One of my many rejected comics from the New Yorker which I wrote about here.

I’m sending this email from Florida, my last day signing for the Epcot Festival of Arts. Florida, which inspired this comic. Here they are threatening to remove teacher’s licenses or charge them with a felony for their classroom libraries. Chilling photos of empty classroom shelves are populating social media in a sign of very sad times.

If you’re in Florida or anywhere book bans are taking place, the American Library Association has a useful list on ways to fight back.
