Elya Braden: “When I read about protestors in Hong Kong being arrested for handing out blank paper, and the consequences of art being stripped from walls and books from libraries, I thought, ‘As I writer, I’ve often been terrified of the blank page, but what do the police have to fear?’ It reminded me of the thought police in the novel 1984.” (web)
