A powerful call from @PENamerica’s @SuzanneNossel urging us to understand that the brutal attempt on #SalmanRushdie’s life is an attack against the freedom to write, read, and think. #wordsmorepowerfulthanknives https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/aug/13/salman-rushdies-entire-life-has-been-an-act-of-defiance
“Instead of just scrolling and sharing links about him and the attack, we can actually read something by Salman Rushdie,” writes Randy Boyagoda: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2022/08/salman-rushdie-fatwa-artistic-freedom/671137/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=share
Author Salman Rushdie has been taken off a ventilator and is able to talk (and joke) Saturday, a day after he was stabbed as he prepared to give a lecture in upstate New York.
