Stephen King Criticizes Hachette Book Group For Cancelling Woody Allen’s Memoir

Stephen King does not approve of a New York publisher’s decision to drop Woody Allen’s memoir amidst intense protest.

This week, Hachette Book Group dropped the release of Woody’s Apropos of Nothing, which was scheduled to come out next month. That choice came after Woody’s estranged son, Ronan Farrow, blasted the publisher on Twitter and dozens of employees staged a walkout Thursday.

“Once you start, the next one is always easier,” Stephen added moments later.

Ronan also has said he was cutting ties with Hachette, whose imprint Little, Brown and Co. published his Catch and Kill.

Freedom of the press is still a thing, and that includes books. Did Hachette do the right thing?
