“Good news and bad news. The good news is that The Purim Superhero is officially a PJ Library book. The bad news is that PJ Library is not distributing the book as it does with ALL other PJ books. This second class status is tremendously disappointing to me. This isn’t the full inclusion and equality that Keshet and its supporters work towards. Let’s hope that PJ will realize that this was a mistake and that Keshet continues to work with our community to keep us moving forward.”
