AND MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED
KinderRinder directly addresses child separation and fascistic horrors in a story about a Nazi grappling with his conscience on a train filled with Jewish children. While a work of fiction, the work has experienced a reawakening from its initial release in 2017, due to the current U.S. administration’s highly publicized policy of separating amnesty-seeking families, including separation of infants and small children akin to those seen in the book.
There is a $12 suggested donation. A $25 donation also includes a book from the Whisk(e)y Tit catalog. An anonymous friend of Whisk(e)y Tit will match the total donations raised up to $500.
