Controversy in the literary world…

According to the Associated Press on Monday, 13 Reasons Why author Jay Asher was expelled from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators for harassment allegations, says executive director Lin Oliver.

While the 42-year-old was kicked out of the nonprofit writing organization in 2017, the news has resurfaced due to the emergence of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements. Illustrator David Diaz was dismissed for misconduct claims as well.

Oliver reveals in an email:

"Both Jay Asher and David Diaz were found to have violated the SCBWI code of conduct in regard to harassment… Claims against them were investigated and, as a result, they are no longer members and neither will be appearing at any SCBWI events in the future."
