The prophetic, bestselling author Margaret Atwood is galvanizing public support for striking library workers in Toronto, Canada, while challenging shortsighted proposed cuts to library budgets. This week, Ms. Atwood said that “People support libraries, but sometimes don’t understand that it takes people to make them run. Just as it takes writers to write books”. She also encouraged her Twitter followers to attend rallies and read-ins at the Writers’ Union of Canada in support of striking library workers.
